Andrew P. Sabelhaus

Andrew P. Sabelhaus is a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Soft Machines Lab in Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, through the Intelligence Community (IC) Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program.

I'm starting as an Assistant Professor at Boston University in January 2022. Stay tuned for more announcements and a revamped website with details of my new research group!

I was previously a NASA Space Technology Research Fellow with the Intelligent Systems Division and Intelligent Robotics Group at NASA Ames Research Center, and completed my PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2019 at the University of California, Berkeley. At Berkeley, I worked with Prof. Alice Agogino in the Berkeley Emergent Space Tensegrities Lab.

My research interests span the modeling, design, and feedback control of soft and flexible robotic systems for locomotion. My past work has focused on the flexible backbones (spines) of quadruped robots built from tensegrity structures, and my current work examines locomotion of soft walking robots powered with shape-memory alloys.
