Welcome to the LIMBS Laboratory

Welcome to the LIMBS laboratory. We strive to discover principles of animal and robot sensory guidance. For animals this is an analysis problem: we reverse engineer the biomechanical and neural control principles underlying animal movement. For robotics, this is a design problem: we incorporate biological inspiration and engineering insights to synthesize new approaches to robot control.

We are part of a consortium of robotics and computational sensing laboratories at Johns Hopkins called the Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics. Our students and postdoctoral associates are primarily appointed through the Mechanical Engineering department, but our members include Biomedical Engineers, Computer Scientists, Electrical Engineers and more.
