My name is Houman Dallali and I am an assistant professor of computer science and mechatronics at California State University, Channel Islands.
I am interested in developing novel robotic devices to be used in rehabilitation and human motion assistance.
I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Michigan Technological University from November 2015 until August 2017. I worked on modeling and control design of a novel robotic ankle-foot prosthesis to enable below knee amputees regain normal walking.
I obtained the B.Sc. degree in electrical and control engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) in 2006, the M.Sc. degree in control systems engineering with distinction from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 2007 and Ph.D. degree in modeling and control of humanoid robots from the University of Manchester, UK, in 2012. I also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the advanced robotics department of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), Genova, Italy from 2012 to 2015. My research at IIT was focused on development of open source dynamic simulation tools for compliant robots, design and implementation of linear classical and nonlinear robust motion control systems on two humanoid robots called the COMAN and WALKMAN.
