Conor Walsh is the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the John A. Paulson Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and a Core Faculty Member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering. He is the is the founder of the Harvard Biodesign Lab, which brings together researchers from the engineering, industrial design, apparel, clinical and business communities to develop new disruptive robotic technologies for augmenting and restoring human performance. This research includes new approaches to the design, manufacture and control of wearable robotic devices and characterizing their performance through biomechanical and physiological studies so as to further the scientific understanding of how humans interact with such machines. He is passionate about educating future innovators and his research group also helped launch the Soft Robotics Toolkit that is an open source resource to promote and disseminate materials for soft robotics to educators and researchers. Conor received his B.A.I and B.A. degrees in Mechanical and Manufacturing engineering from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, in 2003, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2006 and 2010.
Dónal Holland is an Assistant Professor in Mechanical and Materials Engineering at University College Dublin (Ireland) and an Associate at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
