Carlos Rossa, PhD, P.Eng
Dr. Rossa is an Assistant Professor of Mechatronics in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Ontario Tech Univeristy. He received his BEng and MSc degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Metz, Metz, France, both in 2010, and earned his PhD degree in Mechatronics and Robotics from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France, in 2013, under the auspices of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). From 2014 to 2017, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta, Canada. - UOIT webpage
Brayden DeBoon, B.Eng, E.I.T - Masters student
Brayden graduated in 2017 from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Former University of Alberta’s Autonomous Robotic Vehicle Project’s (ARVP) Electrical Team Lead and undergraduate research assistant at the Telerobotic and Biorobotic Systems lab at the U of A. Since January 2018, he has been pursuing a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering at Ontario Tech Univeristy and is working on robot-assisted rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders.
Brayden Kent, B.Eng - Masters student
Brayden graduated in 2018 from Ontario Tech Univeristy (UOIT) with a BEng, Mechanical with a specialization in Mechatronics. Formerly a part of the Instrumentation & Control team that contributed to the continued development of the 8x8 scaled electric combat vehicle (SECV) capstone project. He is currently pursuing a MSc in Mechanical Engineering at Ontario Tech University, researching robot-aided minimally invasive surgery.

Maciej Lacki, B.Eng - Masters student
Maciej graduated from Ontario Tech Univeristy in 2018 with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree. As his capstone project, he worked on design and construction of a large format 3D printer. Also, during his undergraduate years, Maciej worked for Marion Surgical, where he assisted in the development of a virtual surgeon training simulator. Now he is pursuing a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree, researching design of novel haptic devices.
Olivia Wilz, B.Eng - Masters student
Olivia earned her BEng in Mechanical Engineering specializing in Mechatronics in 2019 from the Ontario Tech Univeristy. For her capstone Olivia worked on developing a speed/power boost system for an internal combustion engine. She is continuing her studies at Ontario Tech in the form of a Master’s Degree in Applied Science, Mechanical Engineering. For the Master’s Degree, she is doing research focused on autonomous robotic nephrolithotomy.
Angelica Cusipag - Undergraduate student
Angelica has finished her third year of her B.Eng. degree in Mechatronics Engineering at Ontario Tech University. In the bioMechatronics Lab, Angelica is doing summer research on the design and development of force-feedback devices for minimally invasive surgery. In the future, she plans to pursue a MASc in Mechanical Engineering.

Karl Kanmaz - Undergraduate student
Joining the lab soon.


Amanjot Gulshi - Undergraduate student
Amanjot is in the second year of his B.Eng. degree in Mechatronics Engineering at Ontario Tech Univeristy. In the bioMechatronics Lab, Amanjot is doing part-time research on haptic teleoperation of robotic manipulators with future plans of continuous research and development in robotic prosthesis. Potential applications include robot-assisted rehabilitation and minimally invasive surgery.
