About Me

I'm Christopher Parrott, a research associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The University of Sheffield. I'm working with Prof. Kirill Horoshenkov on the robotics theme of TWENTY65.

Previously, I was a PhD student in the Department of Automatic Control & Systems Engineering at The University of Sheffield, based in Sheffield Robotics. My supervisors were Dr. Roderich Gross and Prof. Tony J. Dodd. My research focused on self-reconfigurable modular robotics, specifically the development of a new system, called HyMod. To find out more about this research, please visit the Publications page. During my spare time, I have been involved in a variety of hardware and software projects, either by myself or as part of a team. Details of these can be found on the Projects page, as well as in various posts on my Blog.
