My name is Tassos Natsakis and I am teaching assistant and post-doctoral researcher at the ROCON lab of Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. My background is in Mechanical engineering and I have done extensive research on the biomechanics of human locomotion. More specifically I studied the behaviour of the human foot in-vitro, with the goal to understand and improve surgical procedures and medical implants.
Besides research, I am very interested in teaching methods, knowledge management and productivity, in an attempt to make my research more efficient, pleasant and easier to explain to others.
