My research focuses on the design, modeling, fabrication and control of mechanical and mechatronic systems, at the micro- and macro-scale. I have a passion for developing innovative mechanical mechanisms and optimizing designs, contributing in additional functions or advantageous performance of a complete autonomous system. Analytically, I always take the challenge to solve multi-physical problems, when the analytical solution leads to a better understanding, design, or advantageous control of a structure or a system.
