I’m did my thesis on legged robots, particularly the hexapod kind.

I am interested in legged robot locomotion in rough and deformable terrain.

My research is focused on using the robot’s legs to probe the terrain and test it, much like how a human would prod and poke at an unsure patch of ground before traversing.

Currently I’m employed by CSIRO and working with Boeing on developing a Digital Twin system for robot arms.

We are trying to see if we can predict anomalies in the performance of the robot arms using machine learning.
