I’m Teresa Vidal Calleja, I’m senior lecturer at the School of Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering and core researcher at the Centre for Autonomous Systems.
My research is in robotics. I investigate algorithms for sensing and perception to make robots autonomous.
The key goal is that with my research, the robots are able to perceive their environment and decide where to go, or to do the task they are required to do.
Text on screen: Why robotics?
It’s thriving, everybody now has realised it will be great to have robots doing automation tasks and sending robots to places where humans cannot access.
I don’t see it as robots taking peoples’ jobs…It’s just robots helping society to be more productive.
Text on screen: Path to Engineering
Ever since I was little I was interested in maths, that was my favourite subject, I loved it.
I was kind of undecided whether I will study physics or engineering, finally I decided on engineering.
When I started studying engineering, mechanical engineering, I knew I wanted to do robotics.

In Australia in particular there is a very... there is an excellent research in field robotics. In UTS in particular for infrastructure maintenance, we are one of the best in the world for this.

There is nothing gender related, it’s nothing that can be tackled only for men or women, it’s a research and engineering field, it’s growing and everybody can jump on it.
