Research Overview

Design theory of novel mechanisms, Kinematics and dynamics of multi-bodied systems, Reconfigurable robots, Multi-modal robotic systems, Morphable soft-bodied robots, Origami robots, Robotic grippers and manipulators, and Aerial robots.


Primary research interests are kinematics and smart mechanisms for robotic systems. This includes design of origami-folding inspired mechanisms and robots, kinematic synthesis and analysis of reconfigurable parallel manipulators, robotic hand for dexterous manipulation.
