Krausz, Nili

Assistant Professor
History Highlights:
  • Dr. Krausz is aמ assistant professor in the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the Technion and the director of the eNaBLe (Neurobotics and Bionic Limbs) Lab. She received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University and BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from University of Colorado Denver. Her PhD research was conducted in the Center for Bionic Medicine at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago). She was also a postdoctoral researcher at the Weizmann Institute of Science and a visiting researcher at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Her research is centered on the development of assistive and rehabilitation robots, with particular interest in how to improve human-robot interaction by using understanding from robotics, controls theory, and human motor control and neurophysiology. Specifically, her research has targeted improving prostheses and exoskeletons, with emphasis on mechanical design, shared and semiautonomous control, computer vision to ultimately to aid in improving quality of life for individuals with physical and neurological pathologies.
Research Interests:
  • mechatronic design
  • shared and semi-autonomous control
  • computer vision
  • biomechanics, neural control of movement
  • human-machine interaction
