Researcher Portfolio

Tao Pey Yuen (Dr)
Scientist III

Dr. Tao graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2004 with a Bachelor in Engineering (First Class Honours). He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the National University of Singapore in 2009 under the A*Star Graduate Scholarship.

Since 2008, he has been with SIMTech before embarking on two A*Star sponsored one-year post-doctoral fellowships in University of California Berkeley and University of Zurich in 2011 and 2012 respectively.

During his work in SIMTech, he was the project leader for a number of industrial projects and led the projects to successful conclusion. He was part of the project team that was awarded the SIMTech Best Industry Project Award in 2011.

His research interests are in the area of robotics, systems and control.

Research Interest:

Control and Robotics
