Aja Carter is an American Paleontologist, and a PhD Student at the University of Pennsylvania. She is also spearheading a new field called paleo-bio-inspired robotics.

Aja was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and grew up there as a child. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in 2014 from Drexel University (in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), and her PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 2020.

Having worked with a number of other researchers in the field, and on a paper for Dreadnoughtus schrani, Aja has also created the new field of paleo-bio-inspired robotics, which aims to re-create prehistoric creatures' movement via robotics to better understand how they moved, and how that can be applied in today's world.
