Florin Dzeladini received his Engineer diploma in Life Sciences & Technology with a minor in BioComputing from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in 2012. His studies focused on the topics of machine learning, signal processing and mathematical modeling.
After doing his Master thesis on the modeling of human locomotion in the Biorobotics Laboratory at EPFL, he joined the group as a PHD candidate in February 2014, to work on the EU project Symbitron.
His research interests are at the interface between neuro-mechanical modeling of locomotion and control of exoskeletons. The research can be separated in three main topics :
– The use of neuro-mechincal models to better understand human locomotion.
– The use of analytical and numerical models to understand the general principles of emergence of coordinated behaviors in animal locomotion.
– The applications of neuro-mechanical principles to the design of new bio-inspired controllers for exoskeletons.
