About Me

From a mechanical engineering background, I've expanded my research and project interests to different fields of robotics. I'm interested in applying theoretical knowledge and system integration to real-world problems, medical robots and minimally invasive surgery being one of them. My primary focus is system identification and model based control for supervised autonomy of robot assisted surgery. My masters thesis work concluded in a cooperative force tracking of two manipulators with impedance control. Additionally, I am interested in various aspects of robotics including optimal control, estimation, machine learning, and computer vision.
