By working closely with biologists, material scientists and mechanists, we are particularly interested in building robotics prototypes by using multiple soft materials, therefore to explore scientific questions in biomechanics including swimming, adhesion and grasping. Based on the understanding of biomechanics, we synthesize bio-inspired soft robotics which do work that traditional rigid robots *cannot* handle, for example, that can safely and effectively interact with human, live organisms and complex surrounding environments. We are also interested in collaborating with industrial people to bring our technologies into devices and products that meet the real-world applications.
