Coverage includes:

  • Soft material creation, characterization, and modeling
  • Flexible and transient electronics
  • Soft actuators and sensors
  • Control and simulation of highly deformable structures
  • Biomechanics and control of soft animals and tissues
  • Biohybrid devices and living machines
  • Design and fabrication of conformable machines
