Margaret Koehler is a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering from the Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab at Stanford University, led by Allison Okamura. Her PhD topic is "Design and Control of Soft Haptic Devices." Supported by a Chateaubriand Fellowship in partnership with Inria, she is conducting a 6-month research internship with the DEFROST team from September 2017 through February 2018. Her internship is part of a year-long collaboration between the DEFROST team and the CHARM Lab. In 2018, Christian Duriez will spend six months as a visiting scholar in the CHARM Lab to continue this exchange. The collaboration focuses on the development of a soft haptic device using the SOFA framework and soft robot control methods developed by the DEFROST team for design and control.
