TITLE:
Assistant Professor
OVERVIEW:

As an assistant professor, Dr. Akbari Hamed has been actively working on a number of different problems and approaches related to control theory, robotics, cyber-physical systems, hybrid dynamical systems, and optimization. His research is interdisciplinary and well positioned to transform state-of-the-art methods for the control of a class of dynamical systems arising from legged robots with two key innovations: (1) Creating computational algorithms to systematically design robust stabilizing controllers for hybrid dynamical systems; and (2) Transferring the control framework into practice with experimental and challenging legged robots in his research laboratory. In particular, his goal is to establish an analytical foundation to create innovative, effective, and powerful algorithms to systematically design nonlinear controllers for hybrid systems. These theoretical innovations offer a unique opportunity to advance dynamic walking, robot-assisted walking, and human-robot interaction technologies through a series of experiments with legged machines, humanoid robots, and powered prosthetic legs.
