Robert Gregg, M.S., Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Robotics

Research Interests

Prof. Robert D. Gregg investigates the control mechanisms of legged locomotion for the development of human-assistive wearable robots (e.g., prostheses and orthoses) and agile autonomous robots. He directs the Locomotor Control Systems Laboratory with the mission of creating robotics and control technologies to advance human ability and improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities. Prof. Gregg approaches this needs-driven research from the perspective of dynamical systems and control theory, investigating and translating concepts from legged robots into transformative solutions for physical rehabilitation. His research interests also include actuator design and control, nonlinear control theory, and biomechanics of human locomotion.
