Research Interests

I am interested in robotic grasping and manipulation; specifically, in the exploitation of soft materials and contact to simplify perception and control models for real-world scenarios. My work consists of two stages. First, I analyze experimental data from human subjects on how they grasp objects with both their natural and soft robotic hands. The goal of this analysis is to reveal the underlying patterns in their grasp strategies such as how they contact the environment, how their coordinate their hand and arm movements, etc. Second, building upon these insights, I develop motion planning algorithms that exploit contact with the environment to grasp objects under visual and actuation uncertainty.
