Biography:

Dr. Oscar Chuy, an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has worked as a senior researcher on several robotics projects focusing on dynamics, control, and motion planning. These include National Science Foundation-funded efforts to improve electric wheelchairs and skid-steered vehicles. Chuy received a Ph.D. in Bioengineering and Robotics from Tohoku University in Japan.

He holds a M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of the Philippines and two B.S. degrees – Electrical Engineering and Electronics and Communication Engineering – from Mindanao State University in the Philippines. His research interests include motion planning using dynamic models, collaborative control of autonomous ground and aerial vehicles, and control of robotic assistive devices. Chuy’s findings have been published in book chapters and in ASME Journal of Dynamics, Journal of Field Robotics, IEEE Transactions on Robots and IEEE Transactions on Systems Man and Cybernetics.

Before joining UWF in 2015, Chuy was a research faculty member at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Florida A&M University – Florida State University College of Engineering, and a senior researcher at the Center for Intelligent Systems, Control and Robotics Florida State University. At CISCOR, he supervised and mentored several undergraduate and Ph.D. students and was a co-developer of the Mechatronics course at FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. He teaches Signals and Systems, Elements of Robotics and other courses.
