Soft and Continuum MicroRobotics

Kanty Rabenorosoa holds a MS degree (2007) in Electrical Engineering from INSA Strasbourg, France and a Ph.D in Microrobotics and Automatic (2010) from Université de Franche-Comté. He was a temporary research assistant at FEMTO-ST Institute in AS2M department (Automatic Control and Micro-Mechatronic Systems) from october 2010 to august 2011. He was a postdoc fellow at LIRMM in DEXTER team between september 2011 to August 2012. He is currently Associate Professor at FEMTO-ST Institute in Automatic Control and Micro-Mechatronic Systems (AS2M) department. His research interests are microrobotics, specially, his investigation is focused on continuum robots with hybrid actuation for medical applications and smart materials actuated soft robots.

He was involved in Labex ACTION (Contract ANR-11-LABX-0001-01) and has participated in several European projects (EUPASS, ARAKNES, μRALP) and ANR projects (NEMRO, µRoCS, Greenshield, OrigaBot). With colleagues, they got a Jury Special Awards in MICRONORA 2014 and a MEDTEC 2015 Innovation Awards. He is awarded a CNRS temporary assignment for one semester in 2022 and visiting researcher at ULB.
