Adu-Bredu wants to make it possible for these robots to carry out practical mobile manipulation jobs like cooking, cleaning, and even playing with kids, said the NSMQ.

Before earning his doctorate, he rose to fame with the OWASS 2014 NSMQ squad. His flawless duel with Reuben Duti drove opponents running for cover.

However, before the semifinals, the team was defeated by Ghana Secondary Technical School (GSTS). Adu-Bredu graduated from Tufts University with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science.

He’s won the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship 2022, offered to outstanding Ph.D. candidates conducting cutting-edge robotics research.

In addition, at IROS 2021, a prestigious international conference on intelligent robots and systems, Alphonsus received the Best Paper Award in Mobile Manipulation.

These honors attest to the significance and effect of his work and demonstrate the high regard in which eminent individuals and organizations in the area see him.
