Equipped with sensory modalities in a technological breakthrough, who better than animals to guide us towards bio-inspired navigation systems

My research focuses on biorobotics, a discipline at the interface between life sciences and robotics.

This work focuses on animal behavior, bio-inspiration, biomimicry, and bio-inspired robotics to create precise long-term navigation systems which operate without recourse to man-made infrastructures (e.g. GPS or 5G networks). This allows us to explain perception-action coupling to understand animals’ spatial orientation mechanisms and to apply them to robotics.

Humans and animals perform similar complex navigation tasks, yet have vastly different visual systems and brains. I am focusing my research on the use of polarized light to invent the navigation systems of tomorrow.
