Annika's biggest inspirations in life are inventor Nikola Tesla and her mother, an aeronautical engineer who taught young Annika to pursue her dreams, regardless of her gender. Although Annika has a very broad knowledge of robotics, her main focus is on building autonomous vehicles, small-scale humanoid robots, open source micro-controller projects and telepresence robots. She feels a kinship with robots and humanoids and feels sad when she sees a beaten up robot.
