In 2010, Sergey Kolyubin graduated from ITMO University with a degree in automation and management. In 2012, he defended his PhD thesis on “System analysis technical data management and processing”.
Sergey Kolyubin did research internships at the IRCCyN Laboratory (France), Personal Robotics Lab, Imperial College London (the UK), and Robotics and Control Systems Lab., Department of Applied Physics and Electronics Umea University (Sweden). He presented his research at such world-class universities as the University of Bergen (Norway) and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (the USA), among others. He also took part in more than 30 major international conferences on automated systems and robotics.
Mr. Kolyubin started his professional career as a WMS administrator at the Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods Company.
From 2007 to 2010, he served as a design engineer at the Project Neftegas company, while in 2010-2011, he worked in the USA as an invited researcher in the General Motors research center. His research project focused on adaptive hybrid control systems for Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon cars, as well as the development of Robonaut 2, a humanoid robot which was part of a high-profile project conducted by NASA.
In 2012-2016, Sergey Kolyubin worked as a research associate at the Industrial Robotics laboratory at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
In 2008, Mr. Kolyubin started working at ITMO University, first as an engineer at the Department of Control Systems and Computer Science, then as a junior research associate and a research associate at the same department. In 2016, he was promoted to the position of senior research associate.
