Jonah’s undergraduate thesis focused on the development of a brittle star inspired soft actuation, which was then published in Engineering Research Express with a focus on the use of embedded Hall effect sensors for a closed feedback composite limb. Alongside this, Jonah has 4 years of technical leadership and aerospace experience at the University of Edinburgh Rocketry team, endeavour. Jonah’s research focus combines these previous experiences by focusing on the dynamic motion potential of untethered soft robots.
