UPDATE: As of September 2014, I work for Google as a Research Scientist with the DeepMind team in London. I can be reached at tassagoogle.com
I'm a postdoctoral research associate at Emo Todorov's Movement Control laboratory. I did my PhD with Tali Tishbi at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
My research is focused on designing model-based controllers for articulated robots using optimal control methods. I have a deep understanding and rich experience with control theory, multibody dynamics and numerical optimization. Most recently my efforts have concentrated on trajectory-optimization and Model Predictive Control in domains involving contact.
This is my Curriculum Vitae.
