Engineering the Diabetic Tendon Microenvironment
This project aims to engineer a synthetic hydrogel-based cell niche that mimics key aspects of the diabetic tendon extracellular matrix. Patient-derived tendon fibroblasts will be used to construct a more physiologically relevant three-dimensional (3D) model.
The role of tendon matrix composition in regulating tenocytes fate: A tissue engineering approach.
The goal of this project is to create a 3D in vitro model to study tendon cell-ECM interaction using collagen gels and primary rat tenocytes.
Tendon-on-a-Chip: Developing and characterizing a multi-channels microfluidic device for studying tendon biology
This goal of this project is to refine and characterize a novel approach in designing microfluidic networks that allow to host tendon-like micro-tissue structures for long-term culturing experiments under mechanical stimulation.

Additive Manufacturing: Towards feature recognition algorithms
This work will focusing on pre-processing possibilities to better adapt the SLM process to the geometry being manufactured. By developing feature recognition algorithm, the student will be able to divide the part in several volumes and scan them with different scanning strategies. See pdf attached.
Establishment of a Novel Experimental System for AFM-based Biophysical Membrane Fusion and Curvature Measurements
• Discover the basic working principles of cells and synapses. • Develop new tools to study them.
Themo-Mechanical Simulation for Additive Manufacturing using GPU capacities
This work proposes to implement a thermo-mechanical simulation using GPU capabilities in order to drastically decrease the simulation time. This will aim at modeling the distortion occuring during the Laser Powder Bed Fusion process. The result will be benchmarked against both real printed part and commercial simualtion solutions (ANSYS).
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.
