Inspired by: Nature! Biomimicry is the art and science of learning and applying nature-proven principles to solve human problems and drive innovation. I have been passionate about biomimicry since my early academic days and to this day it has been a major design methodology I use on all my research, projects, and classes I teach. Making a better world also inspires me a lot. I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela and I have this huge sense of responsibility to make things better. I believe in combining science, engineering, and entrepreneurship together with teamwork and mission-driven purpose. The purpose to serve and improve our way of living is what drives me and this can be reflected in the design of the LIMBER Unibody prosthetic leg.
