Ngoc Tam Lam, mentee in the 2020 program in WA (Curtin University)

Ngoc Tam Lam received his Bachelor Engineering degree in Mechatronic Engineering in 2012 from University of Science and Technology – The University of Danang, Vietnam. In 2017, he received his Master Engineering degree in Systems Integration at Yokohama National University, Japan. His previous research interests include autonomous robots, computational geometry and 3D reconstruction. Tam is currently a second year Ph.D. candidate at Curtin University where he is undertaking research in Biorobotics Research Lab.

Tam’s research project focuses on designing algorithms for discrete path planning applied for a discrete contact theory. His work involves developing graph search techniques such as A*, Breath-first search and RRT* to optimize the point-to-point path planning from an initial configuration to a goal configuration. The application from the developed algorithm will enable dexterity and increase operational capabilities for robot in-hand manipulation.
