Onderzoeker

She did her Ph.D. from Université Grenoble Alpes, France where her research was to study the Coupled electro-diffusio-osmotic effects in a single nanopore for energy conversion applications from the "Blue Energy". During her doctoral training, she trained herself to develop microfluidic and nanofluidic devices and sensing techniques for innovative applications. Afterward, she started her postdoctorate at the Wageningen University & Research on soft robotics which is a new field inspired from soft bodies found in nature such as octopus, worms, gecko, etc. that are able to interact with soft as well as in complex and rough environments intelligently without damaging themselves or the objects they interact with. Understanding the fundamental principles and mechanisms for soft and safe contact from natural bodies and implement them to prepare functional surfaces for soft robotics for delicate handling is the aim of her current research.
