I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Danica Kragic at the Centre for Autonomous Systems and the Computer Vision and Active Perception Lab at KTH Royal Institute of Technology , Stockholm, Sweden. I was previously involved in the EU project TOMSY and the ERC project FlexBot , I am now working on the EU FP-8 project RobDREAM .

Research Interests

  • Representations for precision/fingertip grasping
  • Adaptive grasping and in-hand manipulation
  • Dual-arm manipulation
  • Mobile Manipulation


I will begin to work as a Research Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science & Engineering and the Robotics Institute at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from January 2017.

Our joint project proposal, with KTH and HKUST, "Robotic Manipulation - Representation and Optimization (RoMRO)" for Sponsorship Scheme for Targeted Strategic Partnerships has been approved! Project website will be online soon.

Our paper "A Framework For Optimal Grasp Contact Planning" has been accepted for publication by IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters.

I have passed my dissertation defense and received my Ph.D!
