Short biography

I received the M.Sc. degree in mechatronics from ESME, Ivry-sur-Seine, France, and the M.Sc. degree in control design from Supélec, Gif-sur-Yvette, France, in 2010 and 2012 respectively, and I received the Ph.D. degree in robotics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, in 2016. I am currently at the head of the « Biomechanical and Medical Robotics » Master Program and Assistant Professor in robotics at ESME. My research interests include dexterous manipulation for multifingered robotic hands and collision detection for robot manipulators.
