Research interests: Upper limb prosthetics, inter-joint coordinations, control

Introduction: I am pursuing a PhD degree in Robotics at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (Sorbonnes Universités – UPMC). My work is focused on the control of upper limb prosthetics, and more especially on an intuitive control strategy of the elbow joint. I am investigating the outcomes of an automatic control mode whereby the prosthetic elbow motion is estimated based on a model of natural shoulder/elbow coordinations and IMU-based shoulder measurements.
