Associate Professor of Neurology in the University of Maryland, School of Medicine, Director of the Technology Core, Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation Research & Development (VA RR&D) Maryland Exercise and Robotics Center of Excellence (MERCE), and Faculty at the Maryland Robotics Center, Institute for Systems Research at the University of Maryland at College Park. Prior to his current positions, he held prestigious postdoctoral fellowships at Georgia Institute of Technology (biomedical engineering) and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (rehabilitation robotics). Dr. Roy’s research interests are in human-robot interaction control, robot programming, and rehabilitation robotics, specifically ankle robotics for rehabilitation of gait and mobility function in neurologically disabled populations. Dr. Roy holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in electrical engineering (1998, JMI U.), control systems engineering (2000, U. Sussex), and engineering science & systems (2005, U. Arkansas). He has authored more than 40 research articles and frequently conducts peer-review for high impact journals in robotics and control systems engineering. Dr. Roy is the co-inventor of the control system for exoskeleton guided adaptive control across any joint, co-inventor of the portable ankle robot, and software architect for the command-and-control graphical user interface for robot-assisted mobility training.
