• Discover the basic working principles of cells and synapses. • Develop new tools to study them.
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.
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.
(Conditional) Generative Motion Modelling
Focus of this project is designing a generative temporal model that is able to synthesize novel human motion sequences.
Using Virtual Reality to Improve the Balance of Patients with Bilateral Vestibular Loss
In this project, you will develop a compensation algorithm for bilateral vestibular loss using Virtual Reality (VR), which will be similar to digital image stabilization.
Powder analysis for Additive Manufacturing: development of an innovative device
A new device for evaluating powder properties was designed and set up in our laboratory, and now some experimental work is needed to evaluate it with the multitude of materials that are available in-house thanks to the many industrial projects we are daily dealing with.
Influence of moisture on the SLM process
The SLM process is strongly influenced by the raw material - the powder. Metal powder can absorb moisture during the SLM process chain. Moisture degrades the component properties or even prohibits the processing of powder. This negative influence is to be investigated in this thesis.
Influence of particle size distribution on the SLM process
Research has shown an influence of the particle size distribution on the process parameters (such as laser power and scanning speed) of the SLM process. This influence is to be investigated in this thesis.
Project in mobile health systems
Develop and test personalized and efficient methods, devices and systems that can be used by anyone at the point-of-care to increase our ability to diagnose, monitor, prevent and treat major global health issues.
