Jaldert Rombouts, PhD

Jaldert earned his PhD at the Free University of Amsterdam under Pieter Roelfsema and Sander Bohte for his work on biologically plausible learning in neural networks. At CMU’s Robotics Institute he worked on the SnackBot, and at Brain Corporation he helped develop indoor navigation solutions for large wheeled robots. Besides playing with state of the art learning systems, Jaldert likes cooking (especially breakfast, his favorite meal), biking, hiking, reading, and Krav Maga.
