His FWO research topic is “Genetic robot morphology tool for interactive evolutionary design”. In this project he implements his knowledge in design and rapid manufacturing techniques to develop the idea. The objective it to alleviate the current shortage of FFP2 masks in hospitals to deal with Covid-19.
