Who’s Who in the Hunt Lab


Dr Edmund Hunt aims to build swarms of robots that can deliver useful performance for human users, especially in environmental monitoring applications. Since 2021, he has been a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow. His 2016 PhD in complexity sciences (which received a Faculty of Sciences Commendation) was focused on collective animal behaviour. This is the real-world foundation for swarm engineering, and for us bioinspiration is second nature.
