Xenobot Lab

At the Xenobot Lab, we seek an ever deeper understanding of the emergence of adaptive complexity in natural systems, and harness this knowledge to create new kinds of adaptive robots. These robots can in some cases perform useful work, or they may be used as scientific tools to help us understand how animals evolve, grow, move, sense, and think.

Some of our robots have become known in popular culture as: xenobots.

Our lab embraces the literal interpretation of the word by generating strange robots that, whether built from cells or steel, shine unique light on some of humanity's oldest questions about life and our place in the universe.
