Biography

Wesley Chan is a researcher at the Department of Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering. He received his Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Physics and Master of Applied Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of British Columbia. He then received his Doctorate in Information Science and Technology from the University of Tokyo. He conducted his Master and Doctoral thesis research on a haptic-based robot object handover controller, and an affordance-focused framework for learning handover grasp configuration from observation and interaction respectively. He was awarded the Japanese Government MEXT scholarship and the Dean's Award for his doctoral research.
