Project Description

Fully Funded PhD in Engineering Mathematics at the top Engineering School in the UK

This PhD aims to revolutionise “SoftRobotics” by constructively combining engineering mathematics, cellular biology and active soft-matter to create the first generation of macroscopic robotic “cells" that are able to self-adapt and perform complex tasks unsupervised, very much like cells in our body. This truly interdisciplinary project will merge experimentation, mathematical modelling and simulation, physics, engineering, robotics and biology. We are looking for students with enthusiasm for theoretical and experimental research.
