    Hi! I am currently a 1st year PhD candidate in Bio Inspired Robotics Lab (BIRLab), conducting research on robotics field. I am interested in autonomous bio-inspired robots; reflex activity in actuation and neuromuscular motion control. My current research is on understanding spinal activity in motor control in humans and develop a similar system in robotics based on reflexes and self adapting motion controllers. You can find more information on my "Research" page.

    I am also in close contact with companies, student organisations and global organisations working on robotics, embedded systems and intelligent software, relevant information is on "Links" page. You may find additional information about my personal life in my "Personal" page.

    If you are interested in robotics, send me an e-mail or drop by my office any time.
