Hi, I’m Nancy Ouyang.

I’m an engineer, entrepreneur, and a roboticist (whoo robots!). I’m currently pursuing a PhD in computer science at Harvard. Previously, I studied mechanical engineering from MIT, graduating in 2013.


Featured Projects


ICRA Paper: Six-axis Force-Torque Sensor
Paper on new design for a six-axis force-torque sensor, based on a webcam tracking fiducial tags. Accepted to ICRA 2020. Motivated by the expense and fragility of commercial sensors such as the ATI, which causes issues in contact-rich tasks such as grasping.
