Meet the FAS Faculty: Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio
What is a robot? Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science Rebecca Kramer-Bottiglio is re-defining what is a robot from the ground up.
Working at the intersection of materials, manufacturing, and robotics, she is developing “soft robots” that can adapt their properties, morphology, and behavior for different tasks or environments.
Kramer-Bottiglio is a member of Yale’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, which is home to more than 1,200 faculty members and 50 departments and programs that span the divisions of Humanities, Social Science, and Science, and the School of Engineering & Applied Science and provide the instruction to the students at Yale College and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
