About me

I am working on soft mechanical systems at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory. My research focuses on creating changes in stiffness and damping properties, macroscopic motion, and force generation using 'soft' materials. The buzz word is artificial muscles, but the scope is much broader. I'm thinking about how we can create compliant devices that out perform the typical 'hard' systems engineers usually design.
