Carmel Majidi studies the next generation of biologically-compatible robots, assistive medical devices and electronics.
These “soft-matter technologies” include systems that are elastically deformable and adapt their functionality to the changing demands of their operator and environment.
Majidi was a post-doctoral Fellow at both Princeton and Harvard University and has been published in International Journal of Robotics Research, Soft Robotics, and Lab on a Chip, among others. Majidi addresses the emerging challenges of soft robotics through a unique combination of rapid prototyping, soft-lithography microfabrication and theoretical insights from solid mechanics.
