Ignacio Galiana, Ph.D.

Staff Robotics Engineer

Galiana’s research and development goal is to develop soft wearable devices that can assist human walking. Currently he is the technical lead for a project to develop the next generation of soft wearable exosuits to augment human walking performance. The research in soft exosuits is funded by the DARPA Warrior Web Program. Galiana received his B.S. in Industrial Engineering with a major in Automation and Electronics and a MSc in Automation and Robotics from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. He received his Ph.D. in Automation and Control from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid in 2013. His Ph.D. research focused on the development of human-machine interaction methods and on the design and control of haptic devices. Prior to becoming a staff engineer, Galiana was a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard Biodesign lab to create new control methods for soft exosuits to enhance human performance during overground walking.
