Matthew Bellman has been a member of the Nonlinear Controls and Robotics group since May 2009, and has since received both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, magna cum laude, in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Biomechanics from the University of Florida. Matthew is currently pursuing his Doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering as a National Defense Science and Engineering (NDSEG) Fellow, with a continued focus on the theoretical development of robust, adaptive control systems for applications involving functional electrical stimulation, specifically those involving rehabilitation and mobility of the lower extremities. 
 
Teng-Hu Cheng received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in mechanical engineering from National Taiwan University, Taiwan in 2007 and 2009, respectively. He joined the Nonlinear Controls and Robotics lab at the University of Florida as a doctoral student under the supervision of Dr. Warren Dixon in August 2011. During the summers of 2013 and 2014, he was a research intern with Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Eglin AFB and University of Florida REEF, aiding in designing cooperative control for networked systems with time-varying network topologies and developing event-driven control for networked systems. His research interests include networked system control, switched control, event-driven control, and nonlinear control.
