Research question: Life appeared on planet Earth around 4 billion of years ago, during a process known as abiogenesis or the Origin of Life. My research studies how did this happen, and aims to apply some of those processes into the design of bio-inspired robots. If we know that life happened already at least once, why cannot we use that knowledge to create artifial life?
