Education and Teaching

Technology and Realization and in particular everything around Mechanical Design, Engineering and Manufacturing. Math, Data and Computing; especially the Math part.

Squad: Health

Research focus, project topics I like to coach
"I would like to focus on projects in the Health care area, in particular in the area of Medical Simulation. The current focus is on the Perinatal Life Support project (nick named: the Artificial Womb)."

What is your vision on education/coaching?
"I will try to help my graduation students as much as possible. But it is their graduation."


Exemplary graduation projects of students I coached:|
Yff Verstraeten: Designing a ribcage for a neonatal simulator manikin using 3d printing

Monincx, R. Van Loon: Womb Phone: Improving the bonding process in the artificial womb.

Hoveling: Incorporation of a compact soft actuator to mimic the gasp reflex in fetal manikin

A. Van Luijk: Mapping ethical issues of the future application of the artificial womb
