My research interests include medical robotics, haptic interface design, computer imaging and simulation. I also co-teach the CS-277 Experimental Haptics class at Stanford University with Prof. Ken Salibury and Federico Barbagli. I am also actively involved in the development of the open source haptics framework CHAI 3D

In recent years I have also conducted a number of product developments in the area of haptic interface design and robotic systems which are used today in the medical, aerospace and entertainment fields. A selection of these systems are currently manufactured and commercialized by Force Dimension, a company that I co-founded with three other colleagues in 2001.
