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.

My Research Statement summarizes my scientific agenda.
