My research ambition is to improve the adaptability of robots and other mechanical devices to the environment using embodied intelligence and bioinspiration. My methodology includes understanding and abstracting the dynamic principles that biological organisms employ to adapt to the uncertainties of the environment. Then, I used embodied intelligence to embed these principles into the robots.
My research is inherently multidisciplinary, requiring knowledge of design and manufacturing, biology, environment, electrical and electronics engineering, and computer science.
I am interested in translating my research into key areas to support and promote biodiversity, sustainability, healthcare, human well-being, and farming. Therefore, I co-create with clinicians, farmers, biologists, industry partners, and policymakers.
