My research is is general about using fundamental concepts of mechanics for design and control of novel robots and mechanisms. More specifically, I am focused on design and control of robotic legs for maximum efficiency, stability and robustness. In this way, I extensively use tools such as optimization, nonlinear control theory, and biomechanics to achieve novel hardware designs and control paradigms.
