Stephanie Kemna is a Software Engineer and Project Manager at Maritime Robotics, Trondheim, Norway. She obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southern California in 2018, focusing on multi-robot strategies for adaptive informative sampling using autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). She has been particularly interested in incorporating constraints of the (under)water domain into AxV software development, and demonstrating performance through field trials. From 2009-2012, she worked at the NATO STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation on adaptive behaviors and mission planning for AUVs. She obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Groningen (2008).
