Research Interests

Soft Machines Lab

The primary focus of my research group is on multifunctional materials for soft robots that are safe for human interaction. In particular, we are developing new materials architectures, solid mechanics models, and fabrication methods that address the following emerging challenges: 

  1. 1 Elastically soft sensors and circuits for sensorized “artificial skin” and biomechanically compatible stretchable electronics
  2. 2 Soft multifunctional materials for “artificial muscle” actuation, elastic rigidity tuning, and energy recovery/harvesting
  3. 3 Soft lithography fabrication techniques for rapid production of elastically soft sensors and multifunctional composites
