I am an Assistant Professor in Mechatronics, specializing in the field of Robot Design. My research pursuits are centered around the design, development, and control of autonomous robotic systems, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary applications. These applications include soft and compliant robots for safe interactions, exoskeletons designed to assist in human motion, as well as climbing robotic solutions, designed primarily for industrial inspection.
I have been involved in the creation, technical implementation, scientific or overall management of several European and National R&D projects, including H2020 FETOPEN CSA "VORTEX", H2020 FETOPEN RIA "COMPINNOVA", Vetenskapsrådet (Swedish Research Council) "BAHRT", and Digital Futures "Real-time exoskeleton control for human-in-the-loop optimization", among others. I have also initiated multiple national and international research collaborations, including a long-term ongoing collaboration with HONDA Research Institute of Japan.
My scientific work includes more than 60 articles published in high-impact International Journals and Conferences in the fields of interest, while it has been listed in the TOP 25 most popular publications in Elsevier's Control Engineering Practice and the top 10 most downloaded articles in Springer's Meccanica journal. I have served as an IPC member and Technical Track Chair for multiple international conferences, while being an active reviewer for several high-impact international journals and conferences (including Science Robotics, IEEE Trans. on Mechatronics, IEEE Trans. on Industrial Electronics, IEEE RA-L, ICRA, IROS, among others). I am currently a member of the Socially Intelligent Robotics Consortium, a member of the Swedish Society of Biomechanics and a member of IEEE (CSS, RAS, IES, Young Professionals).
My teaching experience involves mechatronics, robotics, industrial automation and control engineering courses. I have designed and taught multiple iterations of special studies on automatic control and bioinspired robotics, involving advanced applications of actuation design, implementation and control for undergraduate students.
