Jesse van den Kieboom

Research Assistent, Biorobotics Laboratory, EPFL

Short Biography

PortraitJesse van den Kieboom graduated from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, in 2009 and has a MSc in Artificial Intelligence. His master thesis on Biped Locomotion and Stability, a Practical Approach was carried out at the Biorobotics Laboratory EPFL. He joined BIOROB as a research assistent in April 2009 as part of the Evryon project which concerns a co-evolutionary approach to designing a wearable, lower limb, exoskeleton.
