Research summary

I am Professor of Robotics and head of the Soft Robotics group at Bristol Robotics Laboratory

Soft robotics is the research and development of novel compliant technologies for robotic systems, medical applications and engineering.  These include core technologies such as smart materials and artificial muscles, smart mechanisms and structures, autonomous soft robots, smart skins and tactile interaction devices.  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.
