Microrobots, insect biomechanics, and MEMS
Dr. Ryan St. Pierre received his doctoral degree in 2018 from the University of Maryland, with a research focus on small-scale locomotion, and MS and BS degrees in 2013 from Northeastern University. His research interests include microsystems, robotics, and organismal biology to understand highly dynamic biological systems and create microrobot analogs, all at small size scales. His work in microrobotics has been recognized with the Best Paper award at the 2018 Solid-State Sensors, Actuators, and Microsystems Workshop and covered by IEEE Spectrum. Recently, Dr. St. Pierre has been highlighted on the 2020 Forbes 30 Under 30 Science list.
