Personal profile

Personal profile

My name is Kostas Nizamis (1988 Kavala,Greece) and I am an Assistant Professor in Multidisciplinary Design at the University of Twente. I graduated as electrical and computer engineer (M.Eng) from the Democritus University of Thrace in Xanthi, Greece, with a thesis on the study and development of an electronic system for creating an adaptive railroad network using methods inspired by nature. After that, I acquired my degree in Biomedical Engineering (MSc.) at the University of Twente working on the EMG control of active arm supports for people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Between November 2014 and February 2019, I performed my Ph.D. research in the department of Biomechanical Engineering, at the University of Twente, in Symbionics 1.3: Intention Amplifying in Hand Orthoses. In this project, we developed and tested a myocontrolled hand exoskeleton for people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpHjlFM0t3Y). My current research interests involve the application of multidisciplinary design approaches in high impact societal problems. 

Research interests

My previous research focused on bio-signal analysis, hand and arm exoskeletons, intention detection, active support for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and daily -out of the lab- use of assistive devices. I participated in the development of an active myoelectric hand exoskeleton for people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in Multidisciplinary Design. Complex design problems often dictate the integration of multiple disciplines and then need to steer them towards successful collaborative efforts that can effectively address such problems. My vision is to understand the various interactions between different disciplines when solving complex design problems and facilitate collaboration. Additionally, I am very interested in research ethics and how modern technology can have a positive impact on society, by considering the individual needs of the users and all the relevant ethical consequences.
