About me

Welcome! My name is Dylan Drotman and I was previously a postdoctoral researcher in the Bioinspired Robotics and Design Lab. The lab focuses on borrowing ideas from nature to inspire engineered systems with new capabilities.  I worked on the design, modeling, fabrication, and actuation of physically soft robots that are powered by air or water.
