Tj Taiwo

TJ is a 3rd-year PhD researcher at the FARSCOPE Centre for Doctoral Training, where he is focusing on Collective Robotic Additive Manufacturing. He is currently developing the Collective Robotic Additive Manufacturing Performance Evaluation Demonstrator (CRAMPED), a testing rig comprised of two industrial desktop robot arms designed to advance collective additive manufacturing techniques.

After earning a Master’s in Aeronautical Engineering from Imperial College London, TJ joined Jaguar Land Rover’s graduate scheme as an Automatic Transmission Control Engineer. He also had roles in their Research and Crash CAE departments, as well as a stint at the Synaptiv start-up in their incubator. However, a growing interest in robotics led him to a Research Associate position at the University of Bristol, where he worked on diverse projects from robotic clinical exams to hand rehabilitation. In his free time, TJ is an avid tinkerer with a wide range of interests, from rocketry to Raspberry Pi boards to 3D printing.
