I am a PhD student at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) at the mechanical department in the Robotic & MultyBody (R&MM) research group. Through a collaboration with the Physical Chemistry and Polymer Science (FYSC) research group, I am conducting a multidisciplinary research on the development of self-healing robotic concepts. This research was funded through a doctoral (PHD) grant for strategic basic research of the IWT until January 2016 and is now funded by PhD Fellowship of the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO).
The doctoral project is a multidisciplinary research on the implementation of available self-healing (SH) materials in compliant actuators, specic for robotic applications. The project will be conducted on the University of Brussels (VUB) at the research group Robotics and Multibody Mechanics (R&MM) and with a strong involvement of the Physical Chemistry and Polymer Science (FYSC) research ...
