Ayberk Özgür, Ph.D.

I am a robotics engineer; I designed and built the novel Cellulo platform in my Ph.D. in the Computer-Human Interaction in Learning and Instruction Laboratory (CHILI) at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). You can find my Ph.D. thesis here.

Cellulo is a tangible swarm robot platform that opens a new perspective on human learning through unique technologies that it brings together. Check out this video to get a better idea of what they are capable of, and the project homepage for more information such as publications and news coverage.

I did my B.Sc. in the Computer Engineering Department (CMPE) at Bogazici University where I designed and built a low-cost manipulator and a primitive based manipulation planner for cluttered environments as my thesis, which you can find here.

My research interests include but are not limited to:

  • Robot vision

  • Modular robots

  • Reconfigurable robots

  • Paper assisted robots

  • Mobile robots

  • Human-robot interaction

  • Tangible interfaces

  • Robotic manipulators

  • Machine learning and its applications to robotics
