Influence of particle surface roughness on inter-particle forces
Particle surface roughness is linked with the inter-particle forces that are governing cohesion phenomena at powder level such as flowability, a key element in the processability in many industries such as pharma, food and even manufacturing.
Electromagnetic tracking via Deep Learning
The goal of this project is to work on a new magnetic tracking system that combines our expertise in machine learning, haptics, and electromagnetic actuators. The outcome will be incorporated as one of the building blocks of a larger system we are working on that is oriented towards VR/AR haptics.
Computational Haptics
We research wearable and tool-based haptics systems, from hardware, computational design using optimization, and the user experience. Several master projects are open in this area in our group.
3D Hand Pose and Shape from Images
We provide several projects on 3D hand pose/shape estimation and reconstruction from images. If you are a research-oriented student and are interested in work in this area, you can contact me and we can work together on formulating your thesis topic. You can also bring your own ideas.
Parameter identification of a cohesive model for FRP-masonry delamination on the basis of full field kinematic data
A masonry pillar, constituted of conventional bricks and mortar joint, reinforced by FRP sheets, is subjected to delamination experiments (single lap shear test). The reinforced face of the sample can be monitored by a digital camera, and full field kinematic data (in plane displacements of the flat
Development of a reflection-type near-field optical microscope
In this project a reflection-type near-field optical microscope will be designed, developed and characterized.
Automated identification of two-dimensional crystals based on optical contrast difference
The goal of this project is to develop an automated setup that is able to identify flakes of different thicknesses on Si/SiO2 substrates by analyzing the difference in optical contrast between the crystals and the substrate.
