Leif Jentoft - Founder received his PhD from the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Science in 2014, and received his B.S. from Olin College in 2009. He is interested in problems that lie on the intersection between technology and application (Pasteur's Quadrant), especially ways to make robots less expensive and more useful for messy real-world tasks. He was a member of the iRobot / Harvard / Yale team for the DARPA Autonomous Robotic Manipulation program that created the i-HY Hand, and his research interests include passive mechanics, bioinspired design, tactile sensing, and robotic grasping.
Yaroslav Tenzer - Founder is a post-doctoral researcher at the Biorobotics Laboratory at Harvard University, USA. He received a PhD in Medical Robotics from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London, UK. The Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering and the Masters degree in Mechatronics he received from Ben-Gurion University, Israel. His current projects include robotic grasping and developing methods for autonomous mosquito decapitation. His research interests include autonomous robots for service applications, wearable sensors, haptics and surgical robotics.
Daniel Vogt - Collaborator, Soft Circuits received a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the Engineering School of Geneva in 2005 and received a M.Sc. degree in Micro-engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in 2011 with a minor in Management of Technology and Entrepreneurship. A robotics enthusiast, he achieved his Master Thesis at Harvard’s Micro-robotics Laboratory where he is pursuing research. Multicultural and multilingual, his research interests include flying robotics and soft sensors.
Ignacio Galiana - Collaborator, Haptics is a PhD Candidate in Control Engineering at the Centre for Automation and Robotics, UPM-CSIC. He received his B.Sc. degree in Industrial Engineering with a major in Automation and Electronics and his Masters degree in Automation and Robotics at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain. His current research projects include multi-finger haptic technologies, dexterous teleoperation of robotic hands and remote manipulation for maintenance and inspection in unstructured environments. His research interests include control and design of haptic devices, bilateral control for teleoperation systems, force sensing and control, remote manipulation and medical robotics.
