Senior Lecturer, Biomedical Engineering, Ben-Gurion Univ

Ilana Nisky

Ilana Nisky received her B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. from the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Ben-Gurion University, Israel. After a postdoctoral fellowship in the Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine Lab at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University, she recently joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev as a Senior Lecturer, and established the Biomedical Robotics Lab. Ilana and her students apply neuroscience theories about human sensorimotor control in the development of human-operated medical and surgical robotic systems, and use medical robots as a platform to understand human sensorimotor control in real-life tasks. Dr. Nisky is a recipient of the Weizmann Institute of Science national postdoctoral award for advancing women in science, and the Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship. Her research interests include robotics, robot-assisted surgery, teleoperation and telesurgery, human motor control, haptics, human and machine learning, and human-machine interfaces. She is an Executive Committee Member of the EuroHaptics Society.
