Nathan Crilly is a Senior Lecturer in Engineering Design at the University of Cambridge and leads the Design Practice Group in the Cambridge Engineering Design Centre. He has a PhD in Design Research and a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. His research interests are in the areas of design, creativity and communication. He and his group employ an interdisciplinary approach to studying how products are developed, the properties they exhibit, and the ways in which people respond to them.



What can swarm roboticists learn from policy makers, systems biologists and physicists, and vice versa? It is already widely recognised that Robotics is an inherently interdisciplinary field and that designing even a single robot might require input from multiple domains. In Swarm Robotics, interactions between robots add further layers of complexity.
