Ph.D. candidate – Robotics @GaTech
Welcome to my website!
I am Jonathan Camargo, a Fulbright scholar from Colombia, in the Ph.D. in Robotics program at GeorgiaTech. My interests are diverse but orbit around the field of Biomechatronics. I am an alumnus from Universidad de los Andes. I double-majored in Electronics and Mechanical Engineering and also did a Master in M.Eng. At Uniandes, I then worked as an Instructor in Mechanical Engineering before embarking on the PhD journey in the Exoskeleton and Prosthetic Intelligent Control (EPIC) Lab.
My Ph.D. research at EPIC lab has focused on using the fusion of EMG signals and mechanical sensors for user intent recognition, working with both upper and lower limb power prosthetics. My goal is to improve the understanding of locomotion and human movement, developing better interfaces for joint control of prosthetic devices. I want to create better control systems that reliably incorporate the user in the loop for higher accuracy and proprioception.
The Exoskeleton and Prosthetic Intelligent Controls (EPIC) Lab is located at the Robotics Hibay at the Georgia Institute of Technology, with home in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Led by Dr. Aaron Young, our lab is devoted to the design and improvement of powered orthotic and prosthetic systems.
