My current research interests are (see the publications page of our research group for more details) :
- Motion planning for robots
- Modeling of the human musculo-skeletal system (in collaboration with Prof. Y. Nakamura, University of Tokyo, Japan)
- Locomotion and motor control in humans (in collaboration with Dr. H. Hicheur, Prof. D. Bennequin, and Prof. A. Berthoz, Collège de France, France)
- Human posture control and sleepiness (in collaboration with Prof. M. Duarte, University of São Paulo, Brazil)
- Nonlinear contraction theory (in collaboration with Prof. J.-J. Slotine and Dr. N. Tabareau, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA)
- Neural networks, computational neuroscience (in collaboration with Prof. J.-J. Slotine and Dr. N. Tabareau)
With a number of colleagues, I am also trying to raise concerns about military applications of robotics. See the workshop we organized at ICRA 2014.
