Sophie Sakka is an internationally recognized specialist in humanoid robotics. She is also a specialist in human movement, particularly for her modeling work on equilibrium (human, humanoid) and her work on real-time imitation of human movements by a humanoid robot.

She studied at the Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris VI), obtained a PhD in robotics in 2002.

She specialized in humanoid robotics at AIST-Tsukuba (Japan) in 2003-2005, and was recruited at the University of Poitiers as Lecturer in 2005, at the Laboratory of Solid Mechanics (LMS, CNRS UMR 6610 ). In 2006-2007, she is visiting researcher at IIT-Genova (Italy) and acquires the human biomechanics specialty.

In 2010, she joined the Research Institute of Communications and Cybernetics of Nantes (IRCCyN, CNRS UMR 6597) as a researcher where she works on the imitation of human movements by humanoid robots, in real time.

In 2014, she founded the association Robots !, a recognized association of general interest, whose objective is to disseminate knowledge and skills robotics to the general public, in order to support the current transformation of society in this area.

In 2014-2016, she was appointed Project Manager at CNRS (Paris) as a national evaluator of research projects, research structures and researchers in the field of robotics. She is recruited as Associate Professor at Centrale Nantes in 2016 and assigned to the Laboratory of Digital Sciences of Nantes (LS2N, CNRS UMR 6004), in the Robotics and Vivant team (REV). She passes her habilitation to conduct research in December 2017 and is raised in 2018 to the rank of Knight in the National Order of Merit by Mrs. Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, mainly for the contribution associated with the Rob'Autisme project in terms of international innovation and its free distribution within the populations concerned.
