The Robotics Laboratory
at UCSB develops novel control
for autonomous robots. Our
primary focus is robot locomotion, where
underactuation and stochasticity are key challenges, particularly:
- legged locomotion
- flapping-wing micro-aerial vehicles (MAVs)
- supervised autonomy
- lower-limb exoskeletons

We are not actively recruiting undergraduate and graduate
researchers at this time; see "New Members" link at top left of page.
Katie's doctoral work was under that guidance of Prof.
Robot Locomotion Group at MIT, with Neville Hogan as committee chair.
As a postdoctoral fellow, Katie was researching
microrobotic flapping-wing robots
with Prof. Rob Wood
