Andrew P. Sabelhaus

Assistant Professor, ENG (ME, SE)

Andrew Sabelhaus is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Boston University and affiliated with the Division of Systems Engineering.  He is also Director of the BU Soft Robotics Control Lab, where he leads research in combining computational intelligence with embodied intelligence to create robots. Sabelhaus’ research takes a control-oriented approach to the locomotion of soft and flexible robots, spanning problems in modeling, feedback, and mechanical design. His work seeks to make soft robots practical and applicable by integrating AI with the natural robustness of soft mechanisms, allowing a robot to safely complete tasks in unstructured environments.

Sabelhaus received a PhD, Mechanical Engineering, from the University of California, Berkeley. He was a at a
