Wei Gao is currently a D-PhD student in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue. Mr. Gao received his bachelor’s (2009) in Mechanical engineering from the University of Shanghai for Science & Technology. His graduate research involves origami-inspired design and optimization on morphable and self-assembly engineering system, robotic analysis, simulation and actuation, and developing tools that can help synthesize foldable and reconfigurable mechanisms/robotic forms early in the design process.
