Lucas’s research explores the use of compliant actuation mechanisms to improve robots’ resilience in an uncertain world. He seeks to build mechanical compliance into robots without sacrificing robot agility, by developing control strategies and bio-inspired design techniques to compensate for the limitations of such compliant actuators. Lucas’s work spans sensor/actuator design, embedded control systems, robot design optimization, and robot motion planning. Outside the lab, he enjoys being active in any form—from basketball, to swimming, to running.
