Curriculum Vitae

Zoltan holds an MSc in Mechanical Engineering (2006) with focus on microsystems and robotics and a PhD in microrobotics (2011) both from ETH Zurich. His research interests are mathematical modeling and control of complex physical systems. He joined the SuAT group in 2011 as a post-doctoral researcher to work on control strategies for the Adaptive Systems Lab (ASL), and is since 2014 the senior researcher on the HiLo and the ETH House of Natural Resources projects.
