Our research lies at the intersection of applied Nonlinear Control and Hybrid Dynamic Robotics. Our goal is to design controllers for achieving dynamic, fast, energy-efficient, and robust maneuvers on hybrid and underactuated systems such as legged and aerial robots. This will require addressing the challenges of high degree-of-freedom, high degree-of-underactuation, nonlinear and hybrid systems with unilateral constraints, operating in stochastic and hard-to-model regimes. Our work has focused on creating dynamic bipedal locomotion – both walking and running, and dynamic aerial manipulation maneuvers.
