Grant Gibson

I'm Grant Gibson, a Robotics PhD candidate at the University of Michigan, specializing in enhancing terrain-aware bipedal locomotion and whole-body control for humanoids through nonlinear control theory, optimization, and perception integration. My work has been successfully implemented on real-world robotic platforms.

As I approach the end of my PhD this summer (2023), I am excited to explore job opportunities and apply my expertise to contribute to the rapidly evolving field of robotics.
