Harsimran Singh

Harsimran Singh received his B.Tech degree in electrical and electronics engineering from Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology in 2009, and M.Sc. in robotics from the University of the West of England in 2012. In 2017, he received his Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from Korea University of Technology and Education. He is currently a research scientist with the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at German Aerospace Center (DLR). His research interests include haptics, teleoperation, nonlinear control and novel actuators.
