Research summary

My research spans various aspects of physical human-robot interaction. My main focus has been the stable object grasping and manipulation by robot fingers and the development of human-inspired human-robot object handover strategies. I have also worked on the control of flexible joint robots with variable elasticity and the non-model based control of robotic systems with prescribed performance guarantees as well as on teleoperation with haptic feedback for minimally invasive robotic surgery.
