Pakpong Chirarattananon is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at City University of Hong Kong. He received his Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences from Harvard University in 2014 and his M.Phil. in Computational Biology and B.A. in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on biologically-inspired robotic systems, micro aerial vehicles, and hybrid locomotion. Recently, he developed revolving-wing drones, flapping-wing robots, and multimodal multirotors, with related publications in Science, Nature, and Science Robotics. He uses intelligent mechanisms to solve dynamics and control problems, and enhances the performance of robotic devices through improved understanding of interactions between mechanical design, actuation, dynamics, control, and environmental factors. He has received several best paper awards, including the 2021 IEEE Transactions on Robotics King-Sun Fu Memorial Best Paper Award.
