Something about me

My name is Siggi (Sigurður Örn Aðalgeirsson). I grew up in Mosó (right next to Reykjavík), Iceland. I have a wonderful family and seven siblings (two of which you can see in the picture).

School stuff: I graduated summa cum laude from the Electrical- and Computer-Engineering department at the University of Iceland in 2007, moved to Cambridge and started grad school at the MIT Media Lab. Graduated with MS. degree from the Personal Robots group in 2009 and am currently pursuing my PhD degree in that same group.

Fun stuff: I am currently the president of the MIT Kickboxing club and greatly enjoy practicing the sport as well as sparring and I have recently been learning the cuban style of Salsa dancing called Casino Rueda.

For more stuff: Just shoot me an email (if you are human, you’ll have no problem parsing this):
