I am a Research and Teaching Assistant at this lab, doing my PhD in soft interactive sensing and actuation technologies, like smart textile touch sensors and artificial muscle haptic actuators. In addition to research, I coordinate courses and help in teaching; mentor theses students and student assistants; contribute to grant proposal writing; and work on tool development for third-party projects (Intuitex3DCC). Check out my journey!

On the 12th of July 2019, I left the lab and handed over my projects and responsibilities. You can still reach me on my listed This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Tools

  • Sketch&Stitch OS-iOS Suit: An OS app for filtering an image (e.g., a sketch) based on color, and communicating with embroidery machine software to convert each colored file into a custom embroidery pattern that can be stitched using any commercial embroidery machine. An iOS app to capture the image and send it directly to the OS app.
  • Smart Textile Router: A web-based tool based on Eagle for routing wires in arbitrarily shaped PCBs. Originally developed to allow routing conductive yarn traces in artistic smart textile interfaces.
  • Smart Glove Maker: A web-based tool for creating smart gloves using conductive embroidery and for programming them by demonstration, i.e., without writing any code.
