Remy joined the ME faculty in the fall of this year. He earned his PhD from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and his master’s from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research is focused on the design, simulation and control of legged robots and other nonlinear systems. Specifically, he is interested in the effect and exploitation of natural dynamic motions, the role of different gaits and the possibility of force/torque controllable systems — both in conceptual models and hardware. Remy draws inspiration from nature, biology and biomechanics and works to build and control better performing robotic devices.
