About me

I develop robotic models of neuro-biological systems to gain insight into the functionality of their underlying mechanisms and to inspire solutions to hard engineering problems. I undertake this work as part of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory which is a research partnership between the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol. My current project is to apply a cerebellar inspired adaptive control approach to the control and self-calibration of an active, visual-tactile array of sensors actuated using Electro-Active Polymer based artificial muscles. I am also interested in the biology and engineering applications of whisker based tactile sensing, legged locomotion and cognitive developmental robotics.
