Quentin Peyron is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences. His research interests are modelling and analysis of continuum robot kinematics, as well as the design and the control of continuum robots with hybrid actuation strategies.
Before joining CRL in March 2020, Quentin was a PhD student working with the AVR team of ICube laboratory in Strasbourg, France, and the MiNaRoB team of FEMTO-ST institute in Besancon, France. The goal of his PhD was to design and study a new concept of continuum robot using a combination of concentric pre-curved tubes and magnetic actuation for minimally invasive interventions. The PhD work included the modeling of the robot kinematics, the development of numerical tools for kinematic analysis and the realization of prototypes for experimental validation. During his PhD, he worked also with the MSRL Team of ETHZ on the modeling, analysis and design of continuum robots with magnetic actuation. Quentin obtained his engineering degree in Mechatronics from INSA Strasbourg in 2016, as well as a master in robotics, robust control and image processing from university of Strasbourg.
