Robert Siddall    

Lecturer in Robotics, University of Surrey

Dr. Robert Siddall is an aerospace engineer and roboticist with an enthusiasm for unconventional mechatronics, who is interested in understanding the mechanics of animal locomotion for the benefit of synthetic locomotion, particularly flight.

He received his Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Cambridge and my PhD in Aeronautics from Imperial College London, where his thesis on Aerial-Aquatic locomotion won the ‘Best UK PhD in Robotics Award’. Before moving to Surrey he worked at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, Germany, where he studied the arboreal acrobatics of rainforest-dwelling reptiles. He has also been the engineering lead in an ESA-funded startup, where he helped develop a unique agricultural robot.
