E. (Elisabeth) Wilhelm, Dr

Assistant Professor in Control of Robotic Systems for Assistance and Rehabilitation

Research interests

My research focuses on robotics for rehabilitation and assistive devices, artificial sensory stimulation, real-time bio-feedback and human-machine interaction. In particular, I use artificial sensory stimulation to help people with neurological diseases and sleep disorders. To achieve this, I combine microtechnology with robotics and artificial intelligence. A key aspect of my research is to combine advanced bio-signal processing with machine learning techniques to develop algorithms that allow robots to react to the physiological state of the human user in closed-loop manner.
