Patrick Vonwirth has studied computer science at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. During his studies he focused on software-engineering and robotics research, especially in the fields of humanoid robotics and artificial locomotion. With his master thesis 'Modular Control Architecture for Bipedal Walking on a Single Compliant Leg', he finished his regular studies and starts to continue and deepen his research as a PhD student in the Robotics Research Lab.
His research interests are located in the field of humanoid robotics, focusing on bio- and physiologically-inspired actuations systems, control architectures and behaviors of bipedal robots.
