Congratulations Marco! His dissertation is entitled "Modeling of frictional forces during bare finger interactions with solid surfaces". His committee was comprised of Dr. Yon Visell (UCSB, advisor), Dr. Moshe Kam (NJIT), Dr. Katherine Kuchenbecker (MPI Tuebingen), Dr. Leon Hrebien (Drexel Univ.), Dr. Matthew Stamm (Drexel Univ.), and Dr. Tim Kurzweg (Drexel Univ.). More publications describing his work, including results of a collaboration with Dr. Michael Wiertlewski (CNSR-Aix Marseille Univ.) are forthcoming.
We are excited to announce that our new collaboration on soft organic electronic sensors, with the research group of Professor Thuc-Quyen Nguyen, in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCSB, has been awarded a competitive Challenge Grant from the California NanoSystems Institute in the "New Ventures" category. Thanks to the hard work of postdocs Do Thanh Nho and Hung Phan, we look forward to this exciting endeavor.
Prof. Visell is grateful to be the 2017-2018 recipient of a Hellman Family Faculty Fellowship for RE Touch Lab work on the mechanical basis of haptic perception.
Prof. Visell contributed a little bit of voiceover to our 50 year commemorative video.
