Research Interests

Compliant robotics

 

I contribute to the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Tensegrity Robotics project (SUPERball robot) and was a visiting researcher at the NASA Ames Intelligent Robotics Group. See the NASA Tensegrity page for more information.

I'm currently a postdoc at Jochen Steil's lab in Bielefeld, where I'm working with the COMAN compliant humanoid robot.
In 2015, I'll start a postdoc at the Intelligent Robotics Group at NASA Ames with support from ORAU and BAEF.
