Speaker Bio

Ben Mac Murray is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Organic Robotics Laboratory (ORL) at Cornell University. His research focuses on the implementation of elastomer foams in pneumatically powered, compliant machines. His work has resulted in the design and fabrication of a soft fluid pump that functions similarly to the human heart. He is currently working on a patient-specific cardiac assist device design, which is supported by a NIH/NCATS TL1 traineeship. Prior to enrolling at Cornell, he worked for 3 years at Cornerstone Research Group in Dayton, OH where he formulated dynamic light-, moisture-, and temperature-responsive polymers for use in future aerospace composites. He holds 2 patents and has 3 additional patent filings. Ben's previous education includes a B.S. from Iowa State University and an M.S. from Cornell University, both in Materials Science and Engineering.
