Surya G. Nurzaman

Short Bio

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Ishiguro Laboratory, Department of Systems Innovation, Osaka University.  My research interests are in the intersection of robotics, control and intelligent systems. This includes mobile robotics,  biologically inspired robotics, robotics manipulation, human robot interaction, service robotics, distributed robotics and industrial automation. I hold a PhD in Engineering, from Osaka University, Japan, and master and bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Institute of Technology Bandung, Indonesia. I also have several years of working experience as professional technology consultant, and as academician in the field of control and intelligent systems.
