Benoit Rosa got his engineering degree from Ecole Centrale Paris, France, and his PhD in robotics from Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris.

From 2013 to 2015, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Robotic Assisted Surgery Group at KU Leuven, and from 2015 to 2017 a research fellow in the Pediatric Cardiac BioEngineering Lab at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Since 2017 he is a full-time permanent researcher at CNRS, within the ICube Laboratory in Strasbourg, France. His research focuses on the design, modeling, and control of continuum robots for minimally invasive surgery.

Dr. Rosa received the GdR Robotique PhD award for the best French PhD thesis in Robotics in 2013, and was recently named in the top 3 experimental cardiac navigation papers in 2019-2020 by the Society for Cardiac Robotic Navigation. His research was also featured on the cover of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. He is listed as co-inventor on 5 patent applications.
