Research center

Divya Shah received his B. Tech degree in mechanical engineering from Mumbai University, India in 2015. He then graduated from the Erasmus+ European Masters on Advanced Robotics (EMARO+) with double degrees from the Università degli Studi di Genova, Italy and École Centrale de Nantes, France in 2017.

He was then affiliated with the iCubTech Facility at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) as a PhD student from Università degli Studi di Genova, Italy. His doctoral research involved design of wrist and forearm mechanisms for enhanced humanoid dexterity focusing on parallel kinematics and tendon-driven mechanisms. He graduated with a PhD in 2021 and currently continues as a PostDoc with iCubTech. His current work involves design and development of joint modules for humanoid robots for the ergoCub project.
