Research :

Biological inspired control in robotics

My research interest concerns the biological inspired control, particularly the neural network biological models dedicated to control dynamical behaviors of humanoids robots like rhythmic movements of upper limbs or walking and to compensate certain mechanical deficiencies of legged robots and humanoids robots.
