Soft Robotics

Inspired by the stark performance gap between robots and living organisms, our research aims to advance machine intelligence through material design. We envision our efforts advancing innovations at the human-robot interface, while simultaneously ushering a new generation of autonomous machines capable of helping humanity tackle numerous healthcare, societal, and global challenges.
