About Me

Wesley Roozing is an assistant professor at the Robotics and Mechatronics (RaM) group at the University of Twente, The Netherlands. He received the BSc degree in Advanced Technology in 2011 and the MSc degree in Systems and Control in 2014 from the University of Twente. He received his PhD degree in robotics from the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) and University of Genova in 2018, after which he was a postdoc at the Humanoid and Human Centered Mechatronics lab within the department of Advanced Robotics at IIT. He was a visiting student at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR). His research interests include compliant actuation and control, energy-based methods in robotics, bio-inspired and biarticulated actuation, and walking robots.
