Steven M. LaValle


Regarding email: One way to reach me professionally is my University of Oulu email address: However, please do not get frustrated if I am not able to answer. In the 1990s, email was a delightful way to correspond with people. Now it is overwhelmingly stressful to keep on top of the massive amounts of email, and it interferes with my wellbeing. You are welcome to try emailing me two or three times if I do not respond the first time. I often go through busy periods, when I drop many emails, and then lighter times, when I respond quickly. Also, the more personalized the email is, the more likely I am to respond (for example, criticize a technical point in one of my research articles!).

Find me on social media: LinkedIn Facebook

Find my research team at the University of Oulu: Perception Engineering Group

Find my physical body: Try the University of Oulu campus, where you might get lucky and discover me in my office, TS 368. See this map. If you are not from around there, then take note of the high latitude (65 degrees North) and bring appropriate gear for cold weather!
