Dr Ebubekir Avci received his PhD degree in robotics from Osaka University, Japan and was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Toyota Technological Institute, Japan in the field of parallel mechanism robots. Then, he was a Research Associate with the Hamlyn Centre for Robotic Surgery, Imperial College, London. He is currently a Senior Lecturer in Mechatronics and Robotics at Massey University.

Research interests

Ebu’s research is focused on applying robotics approaches to bio-medical field in small scales. His research interests include nano-scale robots for molecule analysis, micro-scale robots for cell manipulation, and millimeter-scale robots for GI Tract analysis. In addition, he is interested in micro-nano manufacturing to develop novel smart mechanisms.

My current research interests include micro-nano systems for bio-medical applications.
