Design principles for Bionics Engineering

This course will guide students in the design of cell and tissue-based systems for application to the development of in vitro models, artificial organs and delivery systems using technology based on stem cells, organoids, smart materials and smart fabrication.


Linking statistical physics, bioengineering, hydrology and fluid mechanics with metabolic theories of ecology across microbial ecosystems: theory and high-throughput experiments". Financed by the SNF Sinergia Programme, the project   aims to develop a comprehensive theoretical and experimental framework for predicting resource usage and allocation to living organisms in the presence of pertubations. The applications and impacts cover several fields from environmental science, to ecology and bioengineering

EXPERIENCE: The “Extended-Personal Reality”: augmented recording and transmission of virtual senses through artificial-IntelligENCE

Social media has transformed the way we communicate through text, images, and videos. Despite recent technological avenues, virtual reality (VR) has not been incorporated in social platforms, hence limiting the comprehensive sharing of an EXPERIENCE. This project makes real the complex interplay between multisensory perception, emotional responses, past experiences, and perspective of the future also by disentangling the mental representation of self in space and time.
