Welcome to Amir Degani’s webpage.
I am an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. I’m an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Robotics (IEEE T-RO). My lab’s work focuses on dynamic locomotion, minimalism and autonomous systems in unstructured environments with applications such as search and rescue and agriculture. See lab’s website for additional information.
Before coming to the Technion I did my MSc, PhD and Postdoc at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh PA. At the Robotics Institute I worked in the Manipulation Lab and the Bio-Robotics lab, supervised by Howie Choset and Matt Mason.
My main interests are Locomotion and Manipulation (mainly control and planning of dynamic moving mechanisms), Kinematics (singularity analysis of parallel mechanisms), Mechanical design (medical mechanisms), other medical applications (knee pathology classifications) and more…
