Andrea Suarez

Andrea first learned about robotics as a high school freshman, which quickly shifted her career goals from artist to engineer. She now has over 15 years of experience in combat robotics, winning a number of national titles. Andrea is featured on BattleBots on ABC as captain of team Witch Doctor, which was a Season 1 quarterfinalist and the number 3 seed for Season 2. Witch Doctor is available as a HEXBUG toy online and in stores. She recently presented at the Kennedy Space Center on designing for damage and redundancy, and has spoken on discussion panels for a variety of audiences.


She is currently working in research and development at Zimmer Biomet, where she has focused on upper extremity trauma for the past 9 years and has been awarded several utility patents. Andrea received her BS and MS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami.



Paul Grata

Paul began his exploits into engineering during high school, attending the engineering magnet program and participating on the FIRST robotics team at Miami Coral Park SHS. He attended Florida International University, earning a bachelors in mechanical engineering while holding the position of Vice Chairman of the student chapter for ASME over two years. Since graduating Paul has continued to pursue his love of robotics and technology, at various times mentoring FIRST and VEX teams while discovering a passion for the design challenge combat robotics offers and the interconnected nature of mechanical design and marketing.

Be it through the design of medical devices as a profession or the integration of electro-mechanical systems for consumer goods and 3D printing for cosplay uses Paul continues to explore the boundaries of design and manufacturing philosophies.
