Short Bio

After studying Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in France where I received an Engineering degree, I then pursued a Master of Science in Robotics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). My master thesis topic was: "Tactile-based Hierarchical Compliance for Stiff Robots using Quadratic Programming". Now working towards a PhD degree, I am mainly focusing on Whole-body Dynamic behavior and Control of Humanoid Robots, namely how to exploit robot dynamic properties in order to make their movements more natural and effective.
