I am regularly recruiting students who are interested in one or many of these topics:
- Software development
- Systems modelling
- Musculoskeletal modelling
- Adapted sports
I am looking for a student interesting in pursuing an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree, with ideally a formation in Engineering (electrical / mechanical / biomedical / systems), to work on…
