My research interests include bio-mimetics, artificial intelligence, robotics and sensors.
Bio-mimetics is an engineering tool that covers a huge scale from the tangible nano-technology level, including materials, actuators and sensors, right up to the intangible level of artificial intelligence, including high-level perception, cognition and reasoning.
My research in the field of artificial intelligence focuses on high-level intelligence and especially human-like reasoning with uncertainty.
In the robotics domain I have been working on autonomous intelligence, especially in human-like driver robots, and intelligent robot sensing and actuation.
My research on sensing extends from tactile sensing techniques to human-like visual sensing and perception.
In my robotic actuator and artificial muscle research I have been developing new polymer-composite actuators involving principles of buckling and bi-stability and robots which are inspired by bio-mimetic study of swimming organisms, including bacteria and fish.
Other research interests include: humanist computing, object oriented knowledge representation and programming, reasoning under uncertainty, computer vision, medical applications of AI, natural descriptors of knowledge, computing with words, human-machine interaction, bio-informatics and bio-mimetics.
