Our group is interested in advancing the state of the art in computational methods for robot design and deployment, with a particular focus on soft and compliant robots. By combining methods in computational geometry with practical engineering design, we develop theory and systems for making robot design and fabrication intuitive and accessible to the non-engineer. Our work lies at the intersection of four major areas:

  • Computational Robot Design
  • Soft and Semi-Rigid Robotics
  • Origami-Inspired Design and Fabrication
  • Modeling and Control for Reconfiguration
