• About ME

    An incoming Ph.D. student in Robotics at Oregon State University, the United States

    Thank you for visiting my website. I am Masafumi Endo, an incoming Ph.D. student in Robotics at Oregon State University.

    I will start to study control and optimization theories for robotic manipulators under the guidance of Prof. Burak Sencer from this fall.

    Previously, I completed my M.E. studies in The Space Robotics Lab., directed by Prof. Kazuya Yoshida at Tohoku University, Japan. My main research topic was the development of a planetary roving vehicle for the exploration on celestial surfaces such as Moon and Mars.

    I have been interested in both fundamental and applicational robotic theories, particularly control, optimization, planning, and intelligence for robots. My research objective is to present new robotic theories in order to contribute to the expansion of the noosphere of humankind.
