Dr Nguyen Thanh Luan

Research Fellow (Theme 4)
University of Leeds



Dr NGUYEN Thanh-Luan is a research fellow at the University of Leeds. His expertise is system design and adaptive control. He developed hardware, firmware and algorithm for a 6-DOFs Robotic Running Foot for Footwear Testing during his PhD and postdoctoral research at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. In the same university, he then has joined and lead a research team to develop insect-computer hybrid robot for search and rescue missions. At the University of Leeds, working in Theme 4, Luan will design, analyse, implement, and test control algorithms for swarms of autonomous robots to cooperate in different inspection tasks in active pipes.
