Robin received his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from ETH Zurich in 2012, focusing on control theory and aerospace engineering. Since August 2012 he is a doctoral candidate at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Professor Raffaello D'Andrea. Among other things, Robin is interested in pushing the performance of dynamical systems closer to the physical limits. In particular, he is working on cooperating flying vehicles, learning algorithms for improving the performance of quadrocopters executing repetitive tasks, and on control algorithms for small tailsitter vehicles. His research is carried out in the ETH Zurich Flying Machine Arena.
