Dr Leszek Pecyna is a Research Associate at King’s College London.

He completed his PhD in Developmental Robotics at the University of Plymouth in 2020. During his PhD Leszek was working on designing developmental robotics models of number cognition which take into account the embodied basis of this process. In his current research Leszek works on multimodal robot perception for manipulation of flexible objects. He utilises visuo-tactile sensing for a reinforcement learning agent to manipulate cables, ropes and cloths.
