Biography

Prof Branson is a chaired Professor of Dynamics and Control and director of the Nottingham Advanced Robotics Laboratory in the Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham, UK. I have held research and teaching positions in the United States, United Kingdom and Italy. These positions have provided extensive experience in the design, modelling and control of complex, multi-body, non-linear systems with primary application to robotic and autonomous systems in manufacturing and healthcare environments. Current and previous projects include: integration of advanced metrology and machine learning to improve robotic motion accuracy; soft robot based continuum surfaces undergoing large deformations; production of novel biomaterials; and intelligent Human-Robot production in Digital Manufacturing enabled environments.
