My current research is in geometry, rigidity and robotic motion.

I am currently developing a small (roughly hand-sized), flexible robotic form that uses ferrofluid and networked electromagnets for actuation. This form is inspired by the several designs in the Soft Robotics Toolkit, most particularly the PneuNets Bending Actuators.

At this moment, I'm looking for potential collaborators with an interest in developing combinatorial motion algorithms - please contact me for more information.
