Welcome to Siyi's homepage! I am currently a Ph.D. candidate from the Haravard Microbotics Lab at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), advised by Prof. Robert Wood. My research focuses on electrical soft sensing, actuation, and control of soft fluid-driven robots. Before joining Harvard, I obtained my Bacherlor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I worked as an undergraduate researcher with Prof. John Rogers on flexible electronics and stretchable plasmonics.
