Dr Michael Mistry is a Reader in Robotics within the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.

His past work covers a variety of locomotion over challenging terrain and autonomous robotics systems with a particular focus on the humanoids.

Michael’s research focuses on issues relevant to dexterous movement in both humans and humanoid robots, including redundancy resolution and inverse kinematics, operational space control and manipulation, stochastic optimal control and internal model learning and control, particularly in environmental contact.

Michael’s current research within the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics involves the control of dynamic behaviours of humanoids.
