Rudolf Lioutikov is an Assistant Professor of Practice at the University of Texas at Austin since 2019. He develops and teaches the Robot Learning Stream of the Freshmen Research Initiative. In addition, Rudolf is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Personal Autonomous Robotics Lab, where he conducts research and develops new methods for areas such as robot learning, reinforcement learning, imitation learning and human-robot collaboration.
Before he joined the UT Computer Science Department, Rudolf worked as a Ph.D. candidate at the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Lab in Darmstadt. In his dissertation he developed an imitation learning pipeline which learns a library of movement primitives and a comprehensible behavior representation from unlabeled data.
Rudolf was warded his Ph.D. with distinction by the Technische Univeristät Darmstadt in 2018 and his dissertation was considered a finalist for the Georges Giralt PhD Award by the European Robotics Federation.
