Robert D. Gregg IV joined the Departments of Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) in June 2013 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to joining UTD, he was a Research Scientist at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and a Postdoctoral Fellow at Northwestern University. Prof. Gregg investigates the control mechanisms of human locomotion for the development of high-performance wearable control systems (e.g., robotic prostheses and orthoses) to enable mobility in persons with disabilities.
Dr. Gregg is a recipient of the NIH Director's New Innovator Award and the Career Award at the Scientific Interface from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. He also received the Best Technical Paper Award of the 2011 International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots, the 2009 O. Hugo Schuck Award from the IFAC American Automatic Control Council, and the Best Student Paper Award of the 2008 American Control Conference. Dr. Gregg is a member of the IEEE Control Systems Society and the IEEE Robotics & Automation Society.
