My research interests include the design, integration and evaluation of mechatronic devices and systems for surgery, therapy and rehabilitation. This includes the development of smart devices for minimally invasive surgery and the design of wearable devices for the treatment of chronic pain. Another component of my research entails the development and evaluation of systems for surgical training and motor skills assessment.
