During 2009-2011 she was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering Technology and Industrial Distribution at Texas A&M University.

Dr. Robson has worked extensively in the areas of Robotics, Geometric Design of Mechanical Linkages and Kinematics of Motion. Her current research interest is in human motion planning with reduced mobility with the goal of developing novel technologies to facilitate the recovery of patients with neurological disorders. She has more than thirty papers published in peer reviewed national and international journals and conferences. Dr. Robson is a recipient of the 2012 NSF NRI collaborative grant "A Design Methodology for Multi-Fingered Robotic Hands with Second Order Kinematic Constraints.” In 2014 Dr. Robson was invited to join the Editorial Review Board of the International Association of Journals and Conferences (IAJC). The same year she was also elected as a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Mechanisms and Robotics (ASME M&R) committee.
