Damjan Miklić joined LARICS in 2005, right after obtaining his engineering degree in control systems at the University of Zagreb Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UNIZG-FER). He was involved in the lab's research and teaching activities in the areas of robotics, autonomous systems, multi-robot coordination, human-robot interaction and bio-hybrid systems. In 2008 and 2009 he spent nine months as a visiting researcher with the MAHRES group at the University of New Mexico, as the recipient of a Fulbright exchange grant. He defended his PhD dissertation on the topic of formation control of multi-robot systems in 2013 under the mentorship of professor Stjepan Bogdan. He participated in several of the laboratory's research projects, most notably EC-SAFEMOBIL, ASSISIbf and ADORE.

He was employed at LARICS until the summer of 2017, when he joined the ArsControl group at the Università degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia. In Italy he collaborated with System Logistics S.p.A. on advanced control methods for Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). He returned to Croatia at the end of 2018 and founded the LARICS spin-off company RoMb Technologies, which provides advanced mobility solutions for the industrial sector. He is currently employed full-time as the director of RoMb Technologies. At FER, he is serving as an external lecturer for the course Programming for the Robot Operating System, which he co-founded.
