I am interested in building deployed, autonomous machines that operate at the cellular scale. Currently, my group builds robotic systems that can freely explore their environment by walking, be manufactured en-masse, and can carry the full power of silicon-based information technology. In moving forward, my work aims to create a complete platform for cell scale robotics, seamlessly integrating functionalities like locomotion, communication, sensing, computation, memory and control. This research spans the breadth of nanoscience, exploring everything from the fundamental mechanics of 2D materials to gait optimization for micron sized robots. In particular, I am interested in using these machines to sense, manipulate, and interact with biological systems, providing a new level of control over the cellular dimension.
