Personal profile

Research interests

I have diverse research interests in the general areas of robotics, autonomous systems and machine learning, with particular interest in:

  • Tactile and vision perception for autonomous robotics
  • Learning and sensorimotor control in autonomous robotics
  • Multimodal human-robot interaction and collaboration
  • Intent recognition for wearable assistive robotics
  • Wearable robots for telepresence and telecontrol

Willing to supervise PhD

Uriel is able to supervise PhD students willing to do research on the field of robotics, touch, vision, machine learning and their intersection for application on robot perception and learning, human-robot interaction, assistive and rehabilitation robotics and telepresence. Interested candidates should contact Uriel for more details about potential research project.
