I joined the Natural Robotics Lab at The University of Sheffield in October 2019, having previously graduated with a MEng in Engineering from Cambridge University. My research focuses on how robots can use self-assembly to construct bridges across gaps out of their bodies. The approach taken incorporates local force measurements into the algorithms in order to build structures that will not collapse under their own self-weight.

Research interests
  • Self-reconfigurable robotics
  • Self-assembly algorithms
  • Force-aware construction
  • Modular robotics
