Robbie Murata from "Child Genius" is one of the contestants featured in the Lifetime reality competition series. He is ten years old and lives in Los Angeles, California. His mother is Jennifer Murata, High School English Language Development Coordinator, while his father is Lon Murata, Pastor.

Robbie Murata is known for his charming enthusiasm and his ability to engage anyone in conversations ranging from the taxonomy of a starfish to the pantheon of Greek gods. He can frequently be found at the Experium Science Academy where he fuels his interest for marine biology and conducting science experiments. Already prepared with a white coat and goggles, Robbie sees his future in medical research.

Even without pressure from his family, Robbie gets results. His self determination for knowledge and range of knowledge gives him a slight edge over his competitors.

Robbie would like to pursue medical research when he grows up. His interests include practicing karate and collecting Lego architecture sets.
