Biography

Hamid Marvi is an assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Arizona State University. Previously, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University (2014-2015) and at Georgia Institute of Technology (2013-2014). He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2013. His work has been published in several scientific journals such as Science and PNAS and has received attention from popular media such as New York Times, Los Angles Times, Washington Post, and BBC. He has also received several awards including Origins Project Faculty Research Award, Sigma Xi Best Ph.D. Thesis Award, and Best ASME-DSCD Student Paper of the Year in Mechatronics. His research aims to study fundamental physics behind interactions of biological systems with their surrounding solid, granular, and fluidic environments. Utilizing biological insights derived from these studies, he would like to develop bio-inspired robotic systems for search and rescue, exploratory, and medical applications.
