In addition to our core research team, the RoboHub's extended research team consists of several professors who are working in parallel and complementary fields of robotics and are regular users of the RoboHub itself and its robots and other equipment.
This group of professors, along with the researchers in each of their respective labs, are valuable contributors to and participants in the RoboHub's overall research themes. Along with collaborating with many of the members of the core research team, they also regularly conduct their own fundamental research in the RoboHub.
For details on any of the extended research team's specific research interests and backgrounds, check out their profiles below.
Professor Arash Arami uses machine learning and system identification techniques to uncover the neural control of human movements and to design optimal controllers and AI for assistive robotic systems such as exoskeletons.
Professor Kerstin Dautenhahn is the Canada 150 Chair in Intelligent Robotics and has pioneered research in social robotics, human-robot interaction and assistive robotics.
Professor Baris Fidan is an expert in system identification and adaptive control for applications in multi-agent systems, mechatronics, control, and planning.
Professor Soo Jeon is a member of the Automation & Controls group in Mechanical & Mechatronics Engineering. His research lies in the area of design and control of mechatronic systems.
Professor Katja Mombaur is the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Human-Centred Robotics and Machine Intelligence. She is an expert on human-robot interaction and human motion analysis.
Professor James Tung focuses on the advancement of human movement research methods and development of assistive technology for independent mobility and rehabilitation.
