Current projects: Upper limb soft robotic exosuit


Katalin is a PhD student who joined the IRIS Lab in her first year in the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering graduate program in 2021. She is also enrolled in a dual degree program with Pázmány Péter Catholic University enabled by a joint agreement between the two institutes. Her research work is focused on how soft robots can be used to assist upper limb movement, and currently she develops a soft wrist exosuit. In her free time, Katalin enjoys leather craft, hiking, and playing basketball.
