About the authors

Prof. Genya Ishigami received his Ph.D. from Tohoku University, Japan, in 2008. He was a postdoctoral associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2008 to 2010, and a research associate at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency from 2010 to 2013. He is currently an Associate Professor at Keio University, Japan. His research interests are in the areas of mobility analysis, vehicle-terrain interaction mechanics, perception, navigation, and control, for application to field robotics such as planetary exploration rovers, unmanned ground vehicles, and construction machines.

Prof. Kazuya Yoshida received B.E., M.S., and Dr. Eng, degrees in Mechanical Engineering Science from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, in 1984, 1986, and 1990, respectively. He served as a Research Associate of the Tokyo Institute of Technology from 1986 to 1994 and Visiting Scientist of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA in 1994. He is a Full-time Professor at the Department of Aerospace Engineering, Tohoku University, Japan, where he started the Space Robotics Lab. He also serves as Head of the International Joint Graduate Program for Integration of Mechanical Systems in Tohoku University since 2018. He has also been contributing to space robotics education for international students at International Space University in Strasbourg, France (for Master of Space Studies) and various locations worldwide (for Summer Study Programs).
