J. Sikorski (Jakub)

PhD Candidate

About Me

Jakub joined the Surgical Robotics Lab in September 2015 to pursue a doctoral degree. He spends most of his time surrounded by tiny tubes and big electromagnets, while developing novel actuation, modelling and control strategies for continuum-style robotic devices.

Born in Duszniki-Zdrój, Poland, he received his International Baccalaureate Diploma in 2010 from V High School (Wrocław, Poland) and his MEng in Biomedical Engineering in 2015 from the University of Glasgow (Scotland).

As a part of his undergraduate degree, Jakub visited the Institute for Biomechanics, ETH Zurich (Switzerland) conducting research on identification procedures for human musculoskeletal system, which served as the basis for his master thesis.

Jakub enjoys biking, cooking, good literature and Minecraft. He likes meeting new people very much, so if you want to ask him anything, please feel encouraged to drop by his office or use any of the contact options available on this page.
