Research focus

Our approach involves selective use of biological geometries, materials or mechanical processes to improve design efficiency and extend capability. Our research is focused on

  • Modelling and experimental analysis of flapping wing flight dynamics and performance
  • Design and simulation of robotics legs for jumping and landing
  • Computational fluid dynamics analysis of biomimetic wings and blades
  • Porous and elastic coatings for aerodynamic flow inspired by avian flight feathers
  • Manufacturing low-drag surface geometries based on the skins of swimming organisms
