Johan Michalove


Roboticist. Educator. Baker.


Johan Ahlm Michalove is a Researcher at 3Ai within the School of Cybernetics, where he works on creating a new branch of engineering in the management of data, machine intelligence, and cyber-physical systems.


Johan initially trained in computer science and philosophy at the University of Washington (UW), where he cultivated skills in combining the material of artificial intelligence with historical materialism. He then earned his Master of Science (Computer Science) from the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at UW. As a graduate researcher at the UW Personal Robotics Lab, Johan was involved in research at the intersection of mobile robotics and machine learning, and together with his colleagues launched an accessible open-source robotics platform used by researchers and educators internationally. Johan has also worked at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), where he contributed to the ground data systems of the Curiosity and Perseverance Mars Rover missions.


Johan is also an experienced educator, having taught and co-designed undergraduate courses in computer ethics, and contributed to a popular transdisciplinary machine intelligence course cited by the New York Times.


When he isn’t busy at the office, Johan can be found applying his amazing attention to detail to the creation of Danish baked goods. We would tell you how good they taste, except he is yet to share them with us :(
