About

I am currently a PostDoctoral Researcher in the Dynamic Legged Systems Group at the Italian Institute of Technology. I received my Ph.D (2016) and Msc (2011) in Intelligent Robotics from the University of Edinburgh, working under the supervision of Prof. Sethu Vijayakumar. Previously, I graduated from the Polytechnic University of Bucharest , with a BSc in Engineering in Automatic Control and Applied Informatics.

My research focuses on: optimal control, machine learning and using variable impedance actuators for systems in domains with contacts. I am currently working on locomotion strategies for the HyQ robot series.

You can read all about my research on my personal page.

If you'd like to know more about my research or would just like to discuss past or future projects, feel free to contact me by email or through LinkedIn.
