Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University

Carmel Majidi, Ph.D., is an associate professor of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, where he leads the Soft Machines Lab. His research group leverages insights and practices from solid mechanics, microfabrication, and bio-inspired robotics to create machines and electronics that are primarily composed of soft and mechanically deformable materials. Majidi is particularly interested in approaches that are practical from a rapid prototyping, wearable computing, or robotics implementation perspective. This includes efforts to enable robust mechanical and electrical interfacing between soft-matter systems and conventional microelectronics. He has received Young Investigator Awards from DARPA, ONR, AFOSR, and NASA.
