Ariella Mansfield


Ariella is pursuing her PhD in Mechanical Engineering under the joint supervision of Dr. Ani Hseih and Dr. Cynthia Sung. She is interested in transformable robots, robot path-planning for complex environments, and bio-inspired robotic design. Ariella received her BSc in Mechanical Engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. As an undergraduate, she worked on a broad range of topics: acoustic phenomena in microflows (under the mentorship of Dr. Amir Gat), gecko-inspired tribological surface designs (in Dr. Michael Varenberg’s research group), and control systems (with industry partner Spectrum Engineering).
