Buse Aktas

Ph.D, PostDoc Fellow, Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Studied mechanical engineering at Princeton, with a minor in visual arts. After working in a Princeton microfluidics lab, Buse developed a device to help individuals with physical and mental disabilities build objects on an assembly line at an Easter Seals workshop. She focuses on making soft robots with smarter bodies through modeling, design, and fabrication. Her studies are concerned with the fundamental mechanical behavior of jamming structures. Her work has broad applications, including for medical devices.
