The University of Washington posted a great article discussing Sam Burden‘s return to UW EE as an Assistant Professor! Sam attended UW as an undergrad before pursuing his PhD at UC Berkeley, where he is currently a Post-Doc. This coming Fall, Sam will be joining the EE department and the BioRobotics Lab as an assistant professor.
Sam has this to say about joining the BRL:
“I am thrilled to be joining UW EE and the BRL, where I’ll study dynamic motion of robots, humans, and animals. I’m particularly eager to translate principles from biology to improve the design of robots, and to adapt engineered devices to assist humans. Between the BRL, the CSNE, and the broader Seattle health sciences community, I couldn’t have found a more ideal place to work.”
