Research Areas and Interests

My research interests include manipulation and reactive locomotion, computer vision and optimization.

My Ph.D thesis focuses a framework of manipulation and locomotion with real-time footstep adaptation. Locomotion and whole body movement are resolved as one unique problem. The same planner and controller are used for both stages of the movement. Final posture and footprint placements are found by resolving an optimization problem on the robot augmented by its footprints. Footstep replanning is done in real-time to correct perception and execution errors. The framework is demonstrated with the HRP-2 robot in a number of different scenarios.

Background and Position

Before coming to LAAS, I received an Engineer degree from the Ecole Polytechnique in 2007 and a Master degree from Stanford University in 2009.
