Winning of 2018 EuroHaptics Society Best Ph.D. Thesis Award
I am delighted to announce that I won the 2018 EuroHaptics Society award for the best Ph.D. thesis in the field of haptics. I received the prize at the IEEE World Haptics Conference in Tokyo, Japan on July 12, 2019. In addition to receiving an honorarium of 1000 Euros, I was given the opportunity to present an overview of her thesis in a special plenary session, and publishing house Springer has invited me to publish her dissertation as a monograph.
