Co-Founder at Marsi Bionics and Senior Researcher at Centre for Automation and Robotics.
Dr Elena Garcia is a Tenured Scientist at the Centre for Automation and Robotics (CSIC-UPM). PhD Robotics Engineering from the Polytechnic University of Madrid, Dr Garcia has 20 years of research experience on the control of legged robots. She received her Ph.D. in “Optimizing the speed and stability of legged robots in natural environments”. She completed her training at the Leg Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a precursor team of dynamically stable walking robots and series-elastic actuation.
Her research is aimed at improving the performance of legged robots, including dynamic stability, active compliance in the foot-ground interaction, developing new actuators for legged robots, designing and controlling agile quadrupeds and lower-limb exoskeletons. She is leading research on the development of the technology required to improve lower-limb exoskeletons for mobility aid, leading the ALTAS 2020 Project, which has received 8 innovation awards by the scientific community, and projects EXOTrainer, EXORAPI and KINDER, all three projects focused on paediatric gait exoskeletons.
