IRIM Robotics Seminar–Nitin Sharma

University of Pittsburgh’s Nitin Sharma presents a seminar as part of the IRIM Robotics Seminar Series. The event will be held in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, Rooms 1116-1118, from 12-1 p.m. and is open to the public.




Nitin Sharma is an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Material Science at the University of Pittsburgh. His research interests include intelligent and robust control of functional electrical stimulation (FES), modeling, optimization, and control of FES-elicited walking, as well as control of uncertain nonlinear systems with input and state delays. 

Before joining the Pittsburgh faculty in 2012, Sharma was an Alberta Innovates-Health Solutions postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Physiology at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.

Sharma received his Ph.D. in 2010 from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Florida. He received an O. Hugo Schuck Award and the Best Student Paper Award in Robotics at the 2009 ASME Dynamic Systems and Controls Conference. He was a finalist for the Best Student Paper Award at the 2008 IEEE Multi-Conference on Systems and Control.
