ROBOTS Association (2008-now) Co-founder, president and contributor: Bring together leading communicators in robotics and AI to disseminate quality information to the general public and engage youth through social media and learning tools: http://robohub.org. The association includes researchers, science journalists, industrials, and hobbyists from 5 continents. These volunteers have already contributed more than 1’000 blog posts which have attracted a wide readership and 200 interviews with high-profile roboticists that have been downloaded over 1 million times (ROBOTS Podcast).
Autonomous Robots Journal - Springer (2010-now) Media Editor: Responsible for presenting the latest publications in robotics to a general audience on the Autonomous Robots Blog.
Youth Outreach - EPFL (2006-2010): Hosted more than 15 groups of students of all ages for robotics demonstrations and lab tours.
