Filipe Veiga is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at George Mason University. He obtained his PhD in Machine Learning and Robotics from the Technische Universität Darmstadt after getting an MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Instituto Superior Técnico. Prior to his appointment at Mason, he was a postdoctoral associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Filipe's research interests focus on the use of perception for the development of intelligent behavior in robots. He relies on biomimetic control approaches in conjunction with state-of-the-art machine learning and hierarchical and distributed systems in order to learn real-time state estimators and complex controllers. He investigates these topics in the context of robot manipulation and multi-model perception.
