Dr Lucas Ferrari Gerez

  • Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering (Biomedical Engineering)

Biography

Dr Lucas Ferrari Gerez is a lecturer in Biomedical Engineering at the James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow. He obtained his PhD from the University of Auckland (New Zealand), focusing on the development of wearable exoskeletons for grasping capabilities enhancement. After that, he worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Harvard Biodesign Lab (Harvard University) on the design and development of soft, wearable robotic devices for upper-limb rehabilitation and muscle activity monitoring. Prior to joining the University of Glasgow in May 2024, Lucas was a Product Development Engineer at Fisher & Paykel Healthcare developing medical devices for acute and chronic respiratory care.

Research interests

I am interested in improving the quality of life of people by developing devices for rehabilitation, daily life assistance, and human performance augmentation. More specifically, my research focuses on the following areas:

  • Development of soft exoskeletons, with novel, modular, and affordable designs for force augmentation of healthy and limited-mobility people.

  • Design assistive devices to allow people with limited mobility to better execute daily life tasks. 

  • Design of simple robotic and bionic hands for robust grasping and dexterous manipulation.

  • Soft sensors for tracking body activity and improving the performance of athletes during physical training.  

  • Novel materials and manufacturing processes that facilitate the development of wearable systems and sensors.
