Biomimetics and Dextrous Manipulation Lab


A typical design review in the loft

Oct 2021 - March 2021: at the BioRobotics Institute at the Scuola Sant'Anna in Pisa.

  • I'm borrowing the office of Prof. Cristian Cipriani
  • And running a PhD course on Multi-Limbed Manipulation in the Fall + TBD in the winter


Research Activities

  • Flying, Climbing and Running robots
  • Haptics and the perception of friction and texture
  • Dexterous Manipulation and Telemanipulation.


Other recent courses

  • ME393 Seminar, Bio-inspired and Human-Interactive Robotics
  • ME112 Mechanical Systems Design.
  • ME21n Renaissance Machine Design freshman seminar.

Embrace the wall with microspines!


  • sometimes manage to get out in the Jensen-Healey
  • more stuff on Mark's BDML wiki page.
