Research Interests

My current research interests include Robotics (Kinematics and Dynamics), Soft Robotics (Electroactive Polymer Actuators and Soft Pneumatic Actuators), Dynamic Systems and Control, Robust Control (Quantitative Feedback Theory), Mechanical Vibration, and Smart Materials. The essential element of my research strategy is to use a multidisciplinary design approach which includes mechanical, electrical, and control system design to insure reaching an optimum solution for complex engineering problems.
