Biography

Biography

Mats Isaksson received his M.Sc. at Lund University, Sweden in 1997. Between 1998-2008, he worked in R&D for ABB Robotics in Sweden. His main responsibilities were improving the motion control of the ABB Robots  and developing novel robot functionality, including the force control option for ABB Robots.

Between 2009-2012 he was a PhD student at Centre for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR) at Deakin University. His research focused on a class of parallel robots with axis-symmetric arm systems. He invented several novel mechanisms in this class with 2-6 degrees of freedom and also contributed to the theoretical analysis of such mechanisms.

Since 2012 he is a research fellow at CISR. His present research projects include parallel robots, robotic force control and haptics.
