Welcome to the website of Dr. Ad (Adam) Spiers. I’m an associate research scientist in the GRAB Lab at Yale University. My research focuses on robotic grasping, haptic navigation and upper limb prosthetics. Previously I worked in tele-operation, surgical robotics and the study of human motion. I have also been involved in a number of collaborative creative projects, using robotics and technology to create art installations.
I’m much better at building robots than websites, so apologies for missing content, dead links, glitchy pictures etc. If you are desperate to find out about something in particular then feel free to contact me.
