Bio-inspired Robotics & Design Laboratory
Singapore University of Technology and Design


Our work is multidisciplinary, we rely on modeling and understanding of basic physical principles to guide creative designs that are heavily influenced by nature. We are also experimentalists at heart and enjoy testing our ideas in the real world. We welcome creative and motivated researchers to join our collaborative environment and help us develop original scientific advances.
