PhD Advisor: Dr. C. David Remy

PhD Institution: University of Michigan

Areas of Expertise:

  • Soft Robotic Sensors and Actuators
  • Mechatronics and control 
  • Design

Research Interest(s):

Wyatt's PhD dissertation focuses on the development of soft, self-sensing actuators. These actuators can be used in robots and human-assistance devices. The sensors rely on changes in inductance to measure actuator motion.

Teaching Interest(s):

Design, Mechatronics, Numerical Methods, Controls, Dynamics
