Tassos is the Principal Investigator of this project. He is an assistant professor of Robotics at the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. His is also responsible for the Modelling in Biomechanics course at the Physics department of the Babes-Bolyai University.
His background is in Mechanical engineering and has done extensive research on the biomechanics of human locomotion. More specifically he studied the behaviour of the human foot in-vitro at KU Leuven (Belgium), with the goal to understand and improve surgical procedures and medical implants. Previously, he coordinated the BETER REHAB project, which dealt as well with robotic rehabilitation.
Besides research, he is very interested in teaching methods, knowledge management and productivity, in an attempt to make research more efficient, pleasant and easier to explain to others.
