David Khalatyan is an M.ASc candidate in the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. He is supervised by Joshua Marshall and is a member of the Offroad Robotics group within the Ingenuity Labs Research Institute. His research centers on the development of a novel robotic system that aims to improve off-highway equipment by incorporating modularity and reconfigurability at the machine level.

David received his B.A.Sc in Mechanical and Materials Engineering from Queen’s University in 2019. During this time, he has worked on various projects including an active rocket apogee control system for an experimental sounding rocket, an ultra-energy-efficient prototype vehicle, and an in-situ thermal management system used for degradation testing materials during exposure to accelerated H+ and He++ ions at elevated temperatures.
