Dr. Mustafa Boyvat works on development of highly functional battery-free wireless robotic devices by combining wireless power transmission techniques with the latest robotic technologies. Previously, he worked on small scale wireless origami robots and ultra-strong wireless soft actuators at Harvard University. He received his doctoral and master's degrees from ETH Zurich, focusing on electromagnetics and micro-optoelectronics, and earned his bachelor's degree from METU (Middle East Technical University). His research interests include electromagnetics, small scale robots, soft robots, MRI-based robotics, and biomedical applications of wireless robotic devices.
