Informal International Partners

This section includes some recent collaboration. We have initiated research work with Prof. Bordas at the University of Luxembourg on Model reduction with contacts. We are also working with Adrien Escande and with Prof. Yoshida, at AIST Japan, on the simulation of deformable objects in contact and with Prof Miguel Otaduy at URJC Madrid on human hand grasping and manipulation (Conference paper in 2014 and journal paper in 2015).
