My research mainly involves Physical Human-Robot Interaction, Teleoperation, Exoskeleton, Robot Learning and Human Motor Control.


I received a Ph.D. in robotics from Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2015. I conducted my Ph.D. studies at Department for Automation, Biocybernetics and Robotics, Jo┼żef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana from 2011 to 2015, and at the Department of Brain-Robot Interface, ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan in 2013 and 2014. I was with the Human-Robot Interfaces and Physical Interaction Lab, Advanced Robotics, Italian Institute of Technology in Genoa, Italy from 2015 to 2018. From 2019 I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Cognitive Robotics, Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
