Aaron Edsinger is currently a post-doctoral researcher at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. He is working in the Humanoid Robotics Group led by Professor Rodney Brooks. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from Stanford University and a S.M. from MIT, and a Ph.D. from MIT.

Edsinger has also recently co-founded the robotics companies HeeHeeHee Labs and Meka Robotics.

His work in robotics grew out of the San Francisco robotic art scene in the early 1990's. Since then he has built over a dozen research and artistic robot platforms with long time collaborator Jeff Weber.

His research interests are in developmental and behavior based cognitive architectures for humanoid robots, bimanual robot manipulation, compliant manipulator and hand design, and sensorimotor learning for manipulation.

He defended his dissertation,"Robot Manipulation in Human Environments", in December 2006.
