Olivier Lambercy was born 1982 in Vevey, Switzerland. He studied Microengineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, where he received the MSc degree in 2005. He completed his PhD at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2009, in collaboration with Simon Fraser University (SFU), Canada and Imperial College London.
During his PhD, he investigated robot-assisted rehabilitation of hand function after stroke. He participated in the design and development of four dedicated robotic devices for forearm, hand and finger rehabilitation. He also performed several clinical studies using the developed robotic tools on post-stroke subjects in Canada and Singapore, in collaboration with Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
In January 2009, he joined the Rehabilitation Engineering Lab, where he continues his research on robot-assisted hand rehabilitation and the use of haptic devices for medical applications.
