“The great book, always open and which we should make an effort to read, is that of Nature”
-Antoni Gaudi

The focus of the Bio-Inspired Adaptive Morphology (BAM) Laboratory is to design, model, and build adaptive bio-inspired structures and systems for robotic applications. These mechanisms are inspired and informed by solutions found in nature and are designed to resolve state of the art engineering challenges.

The mission of the BAM Lab is to:

  • Develop innovative solutions for engineering challenges based on desirable behaviors found in nature.

  • Utilize novel analytical and experimental methods to design, model, and build adaptive and intelligent aerospace and robotic structures.

  • Produce scientists and engineers who excel in performing innovative research in a multidisciplinary environment.

  • Motivate today’s students to become the scientists and researchers of tomorrow, especially among women and under-represented groups in engineering.
