research overview

  • My research focuses on two thrusts: (1) embedding sensing, computation, and actuation into materials to make materials smart, and (2) investigating how robots can take advantage of such smart materials to improve perception and control. I currently study two classes of systems: smart lattices that can change their physical properties based on local sensing and distributed computation and robotic manipulation.
