Marlin Polo Strub, PhD

Robotics Technologist


Marlin Strub is Robotics Technologist in the Robotics Mobility group (347F). Marlin was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow at JPL. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford, where his research focused on almost-surely asymptotically optimal path planning algorithms for complex systems in robotics and beyond. Marlin also holds an M.Sc. in Robotics, Systems, and Controls and a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, both degrees from ETH Zurich. His Master's thesis developed a visual place-recognition system based on graph-matching techniques and his Bachelor's thesis investigated a bounding-gait control algorithm for the quadruped robot StarlETH.
