Roboticist. Entrepreneur. Skydiver.#
Mina Henein is a Researcher and lecturer at 3Ai within the School of Cybernetics. Mina completed his PhD at the Australian National University, and the Australian Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision working on algorithms for space and underwater exploration. Sadly, he did not get to test any of his algorithms in space or underwater, however, his main application domain was autonomous cars.
Prior to his PhD, Mina received a B.Sc. in Engineering and Materials Science majoring in Mechatronics from the German University in Cairo, Egypt. He then worked for Procter & Gamble as a Near-East demand manager before pursuing his M.Sc. in Advanced Robotics. Mina uses his education to travel the world. He received a double M.Sc. degree; European Masters on Advanced Robotics (EMARo) from Università degli Studi di Genova, Italy and Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. He also previously worked as a visiting research assistant at the Italian Institute of Technology and the Autonomous Systems Lab at ETH Zurich where he carried out his M.Sc. thesis.
Mina is very passionate about soccer, travel, languages and recently got into skydiving. He aspires to complete a solo diving course to be able to skydive solo in every country he visits next (once we can do so again!).
