The Laboratory for Robotics and Applied Mechanics (LRAM) specializes in research at the interface of robotics, physics, and biology. This work includes projects inspired by:

  • Spiders and their webs
  • Snake locomotion

We also conduct fundamental mathematical research in the field geometric mechanics, which uses principles from differential geometry to gain insight on problems in classical mechanics.

As a third aspect of our work, we collaborate with local industry to improve the automation of difficult tasks that require highly-flexible solutions.
