Cohort 4

Angel Galbert

Project theme:  My project is on the development of upper limb orthotics with functional grip and gesture assistance. The research will cover aspects of actuation, intelligent systems, and user intent. 

Supervisors: 1st Professor Xiu Yan and 2nd Dr Arjan Buis (University of Strathclyde)

Background: Originally from Martinique, I came to the UK at a young age for my studies. I completed my MEng in Mechatronics and Robotic engineering at the University of Sheffield and based my dissertation on developing an E-glove for use in hand rehabilitation therapy. My research inspired me to continue development in medical devices and led me to apply for the CDT in P&O.

Hobbies: My hobbies include painting, board games, tabletop RPGs (specifically Pathfinder 2E), and keeping up with my favourite shows.
