The ABC Lab is broadly interested in what structures and systems in nature (specifically those found in arthropods) can help us more efficiently design novel technologies.

We use basic scientific data to inform the bioinspired design process.

Please look around for information about current projects, lab members, teaching bioinspired design, and outreach.

We are currently looking for motivated undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral researchers. There are many opportunities for exploring various research ideas, as long as they are related to bioinspired design and bioinspiration. Not all qualified individuals will be able to join the ABClab since space is limited. Please contact Prof. Alleyne with detailed information on your interests, background, grades, coursework, and CV.
