Research Interest:

Integrated Circuits for Programmable Matter

Current Research:

PM consists of tiny, mm-scale quasi-spherical robots called Catoms, which can autonomously attach themselves in different positions to their neighbors using electrostatic forces. By combining thousands of Catoms, a morphable 3D-structure can be programmed to take arbitrary shapes. PM enables instant functional expression of new shapes and opens up a host of industrial and artistic applications. My research is into developing integrated circuits for programmable matter applications
