Ruby Marshall, Lecturer in Soft Robotics

Ruby Marshall is a Lecturer in Soft Robotics at Design Informatics while also currently in the final stages of her PhD studies at the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh, in the Soft Systems robotics group. Her research focuses on actuated textile design and function, looking at how physical properties can be varied and tuned to produce a desired system output. Although trained and qualified as an Aero-Mechanical engineer Ruby’s interests lie in soft robotics for human well-being with a view to exploring and creating novel, biological and eco-friendly robotics.


Research Interests:

  • Soft robotics
  • Actuated textiles
  • Bio materials
  • Robotics for well-being
  • Human-centred design
