Benoit Landry

Research Scientist @ 

I currently lead a robotics research team at Apple.

In 2021, I received a PhD in Aeronautics & Astronautics from Stanford University where I studied under the guidance of Professor Marco Pavone. My research leveraged machine learning, optimization and control theory to address planning and control problems in robotics.

In 2015, I received a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. At MIT, I conducted research under the supervision of Professor Russ Tedrake.

Over my time as a researcher, I had the privilege of becoming a Siebel Scholar, and receive the Stanford Robotics Center Fellowship supported by FANUC. I cofounded the Stanford Robotics Seminar, and helped design and teach the first two instances of Principles of Robotic Autonomy.


Nov 1, 2021 I joined Apple.
Jun 14, 2021 I graduated Stanford.
