Salzman, Oren

Senior Lecturer
History Highlights:
  • Oren Salzman is an assistant Professor at the Computer Science department at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. His research focuses on revisiting classical computer science algorithms, tools and paradigms to address the computational challenges that arise when planning motions for robots. Combining techniques from diverse domains such as computational geometry, graph theory and machine learning, he strives to provide efficient algorithms with rigorous analysis for robot systems with many degrees of freedom moving in tight quarters. He completed a PhD in the School of Computer Science at Tel Aviv University under the supervision of Prof. Dan Halperin. He then continued his studies as a postdoctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University working with Siddhartha Srinivasa and Maxim Likhachev and as a research scientist at the National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC). Oren has published over forty peer-reviewed conference and journal papers. He has received the best paper and best student paper in ICAPS 18 and ICAPS 19, respectively.
Research Interests:
  • Algorithmic foundations of robot motion planning
  • Multi agent path finding with application to warehouse environments
  • Computational challenges in planning for medical robots
