Research Assistants/ Ph.D. Students:

Martyna Ekiert MSc,  is a 4th year PhD candidate as well as teaching & research assistant at the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at AGH University of Science and Technology. Her scientific interests are focused on the biomechanics of soft tissues, especially influence of temperature on viscoelastic properties of tendons. Her research is also related to computational chemomechanical modeling for life science application and biomaterials stability issues.

Ms Ekiert is also a principal investigator of project Chemomechanical modeling of the tendon hierarchical structure subjected to freezing at the edge of the water – ice phase transition (project granted by The National Science Centre, nr 2015/17/N/ST7/03729).

 

Natalia Grzechnik MSc, a Ph.D. student at the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. Her research is related to tendon biomechanics in terms of aging and calcification processes. Her studies combine application of mechanical, chemical and biological methods of tissue testing.

 

 

Konrad Kloch MSc, a Ph.D. student at the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. His research is focused on the fretting phenomenon observed during random vibration tests. He’s interested in both experiment and modeling (FEA) in this field.

 

Alexander Wilhelm MSc, a Ph.D. student at the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at the AGH UST. His scientific interests are focused on the biomechanical and biophysical analysis of tendon tissues, primarily the development of imaging methods of matrix and fascicles.
