Open positions

Research team

Facilities & equipment



I am determined to solve challenging robotics problems, build autonomous robots to work for human and with human, and train future robotics engineers to be able to do so.

Research interest

·    Optimal robot motion, specially under constraints

·    Tight integration of estimation and control

·    Rigid and non-rigid material handling (pallet picking, earth moving)

·    Optimal power management for hydraulic mobile machines (wheel loader, excavator)

·    Learning from demonstration, in particular, learning stable dynamic systems
