This is the personal website of Michael T. Tolley, Assistant Professor in the department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of California, San Diego. My research focuses on borrowing ideas from nature to inspire engineered systems with new capabilities. In particular, I am interested in soft robotics, fabrication by folding, and self-assembly. For the most up-to-date details, please see my group's website at bioinspired.eng.ucsd.edu.

This website includes details about previous research projects I've worked on, my teaching activities, and other projects and interests, as well as my schedule.
