Areas of Interest
I’m broadly interested in applied optimization and control theory for dynamic, intelligent, and physically interactive robotic systems. My research concentrates on bringing new levels of mobility to both legged robots and assistive devices.
Current projects focus on:
- control systems synthesis for extreme-terrain mobility with humanoid and quadruped robots
- system identification and numerical methods for simulating robot systems
- human-machine interface technologies for assistive exoskeletons and lower-extremity prostheses
