Future plans

I find doing research very rewarding and motivating. I love discovering and learning new things, and communicating these findings to others. After my graduation, I want to continue doing research in design in the soft robotics field in a PhD position.

I see soft robotics as a broad discipline. As a designer in this field, I want to investigate further the opportunities that soft design and shape-change holds for designers, for example in the field of assistive devices such as prosthetics or braces, or the smart clothes with integrated fluidics systems such as the ones that Rice University is working on. I’m also interested in helping students hack machines to enable them to use new fabrication methods and innovate in shape-changing and soft design.

After a PhD I would be interested in continuing as a Postdoc and ultimately pursue a career as a researcher or university professor.
