PhD Student
Mechanical Engineering

I completed my BEng in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Pretoria, South Africa, in 2019.

My research focus is on the mechanical development, design and manufacturing of our robotic CLARI & mCLARI robot platform. I have an interest in legged movement mechanisms for small scale robotics, specifically in connection to animal biology. Recent work has focused on spider locomotion.

Additionally I have a passion for anything that requires balance and the outdoors, spending my free time downhill unicycling, whitewater kayaking or climbing.
