Postdoctoral Scholar @ Developing predictive simulation frameworks for design and adaptive control of robotic assistive devices, in particular for assisting human locomotion, in collaboration with Ekso Bionics company. From January 2015 to Present (10 months) San Francisco Bay AreaVisiting Postdoc. @ Worked on a control framework to synthesize optimal motion controllers for a humanoid and a human dynamics model, at the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory (NMBL). Collaborated with a team of mechanical engineers from Biomimetics and Dexterous Manipulation Laboratory for design of robotic assistive devices, in particular, for providing haptic feedback to users. The Postdoc grant was awarded by the Swiss National Center of Competence in Research Robotics and Stanford Neuromuscular Biomechanics Laboratory.
