  • Biomechatronics

Paris Myers is a graduate student in the Biomechatronics group and a 2023 Mechanical Engineering NSF Graduate Research Fellow. 

She is passionate about merging arts and design, sustainable materials and practices, and community-driven initiatives to advance neuroembodied, human-bionic integration.  

Paris' arts practice spans video, sound, and interactive, data-driven welded sculpture to investigate the sensory parameters of our mind-body ecosystems.  Her previous undergraduate research focused on quantitative investigations of gender and racial bias in Human Robot Interaction contexts at Oregon State’s SHARE lab, and intersections of soft robotics, haptics, and conceptual art as a visiting undergraduate researcher in the Harvard Biorobotics Lab.  In addition to robotics and intermedia art, she is passionate about sustainable design, and co-led OSU’s team for the U.S. D.O.E and National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) sponsored 2020-21 Marine Energy Collegiate Competition. At the 2021 International Conference on Ocean Energy (ICOE), they received awards from NREL for their novel wave energy converter design and community engagement. 

A recent graduate of Oregon State University Honors College, she earned degrees in Bioengineering (HBS '22) and Fine Art (HBFA '22) with minors in Popular Music and Art History. To learn more, visit
