About Me

I, Kyrian Staman (1986), obtained my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Twente and graduated in 2014 for my Master's degree at the Laboratory of Mechanical Automation and Mechatronics, working on active vibration isolation of Coriolis mass flow meters.

I continued to work at the University of Twente at the chair of Robotics and Mechatronics as a mechanical engineer (temporary staff) on the SHERPA project, designing a kinematically coupled robotic elbow. Until in 2015 I started as a Ph.D. student at the department of Biomechanical Engineering, working on the actuation and control of a robotic suit designed to return human gait to individuals suffering from impairment of the lower extremities.

In my free time, I try to improve my physical and mental condition by practicing parkour.
