Biomimetics and Dextrous Manipulation Lab


My research is in the area of robot grasping and in-hand manipulation. I investigate how we might change the pose of an objects being held by the robot gripper leveraging external forces such as gravity and pushing against the environment.

Previously, I worked on a research project in collaboration with the Radiology Department on using Augmented Reality guided needle biopsy (HoloNeedle). Between my M.S and Ph.D, I spent two years working at Flexiv Robotics helping develop their robot arm product for industrial automation. I worked on the joint module which included designing the motor driver and developing the current and torque controller.

Other things about me:

  • I grew up and lived in Chile
  • I did my undergraduate in EECS at UC Berkeley (go bears!).
