Skills:Robotics, bio-electricity, soft robotics, aquatic robots, wearable technology, multi-sensory (sound/touch/visual) installation artist
I'm a lecturer in robotics at University of Bristol. In my research I focus ion energy-autonomous robots: robots that sustain their own electrical energy needs by digesting aquatic pollution. I also research soft actuators and mechanisms for controlling fluidic systems and for swimming robots.
I recently took my robot, the Row-bot (a soft, swimming robot that eats pollution) to the science museum in London and I was really inspired by the comments from the young people who came to see the robot in action. Now I want to engage more with these people to make their cool ideas reality.
