I received an engineering degree in electronics and the Postgraduate Diploma degree in computer engineering and automation from Tishreen University, Lattakia, Syria, in 2003 and 2005, respectively, a Master of Science degree in intelligent and communicating systems from the University of Cergy-Pontoise, France, and the École Nationale Supérieure de l'Électronique et de ses Applications, France, in 2008, and the joint Ph.D. degree from the University of Versailles, France, and the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 2014. From March 2014 to April 2020, I worked as a lecturer and researcher at the Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany.
I am interested in the interdisciplinary field of computational cognitive systems with a direct application on physical systems such as robots and wearable robotic devices. I am particularly interested in cognitive systems, inspired by the natural perception-cognition-action loop and their application in control robotic extensions of the human body. Besides, I have experience in robot learning for locomotion and manipulation, humanoid robots, design and control of soft robots, and soft wearable robots.
Since Mai 2020, I have a position as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Systems at TUM.
