Tania Morimoto

Assistant Professor

Tania K. Morimoto is an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. She obtained her undergraduate degree at MIT, followed by her masters and PhD degrees at Stanford University, all in Mechanical Engineering. Her research focuses on the design and control of flexible continuum robots for increased dexterity and accessibility in uncertain environments, particularly for minimally invasive surgical interventions. She is also working to address the challenges of designing human-in-the-loop interfaces for controlling these flexible and soft robots, including the integration of haptic feedback to improve surgical outcomes.
