Ben is a PhD candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Auckland (New Zealand) and member of the
New Dexterity research group. Ben holds a ME in Mechanical Engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechatronics and a Bachelor of Science
in Physics from the University of Auckland (NZ). His research focuses on modelling, design and development of a bioinspired,
anthropomorphic, adaptive robot arm hand system.
[November 2019] The New Dexterity \ AI Data Innovations team (Gal Gorjup, Geng Gao, Anany Dwivedi, Ben Chang, Ruobing Yu, and Minas Liarokapis) got the 1st place of the Manufacturing track of the Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition of IEEE\RSJ International Conference on Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IROS) 2019 (Macau, China).
