Who is Nitish Kumar

Dr.
Nitish
Kumar

Nitish Kumar completed his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (2009) and his master's degree in control engineering and robotics at the Warsaw University of Technology and the Ecole Centrale de Nantes (2011). He then did his doctorate at the Université de Strasbourg (2014) in the field of mechatronic system development in medical robotics. He has published his work in IEEE and ASME journals and conferences. His research interests lie in mechatronic system development as well as the type and dimension-based synthesis of task-specific mechanisms (elastic and rigid bodies). With the help of screw theory, he develops planning and optimization tools for kinematic and dynamic analysis, as well as the model-based control of robots. Between
