I am currently working as ESR-ITN-MSCA fellow at the Biomedical Engineering and Assistive Technology group. My project is “Design, development and testing of a low cost pet-like care-bot, in connection with IoT, as a source of interventions for patients with dementia”. I have master’s degree in mechanical engineering (University of West Bohemia, Pilsen). During the course of my career, I have been drifted from industrial towards multidisciplinary societal challenges. My current research focus is within robotics, assistive technology and non-invasive medical technology. I have gained practical research experience in autonomous robotics and non-invasive medical technology (fNIRS brain neuroimaging, motion analysis, wearable physio-telemetry etc.) as a research engineer at the Oslo Metropolitan University.
My goal in project DISTINCT is to contribute towards improving the care and quality of life of people with dementia and thus reduce the burden of caregivers and relatives.
