SPICA-SKIRT: A far-infrared photometry and polarimetry simulation toolbax in preparation of the SPICA mission Ghent University
The infrared wavelength range is key to understand the origin of galaxies, stars and planets. SPICA is a proposed European-Japanese infrared space mission that has recently been selected by ESA as a candidate M5 mission for its Cosmic Vision programme. The B-BOP instrument onboard SPICA will enable sensitive imaging and polarimetric mapping, with applications from the filaments and supernova remnants in our Milky Way to external galaxies and ...
PRODEX-11 project: URINIS-A phase 2: Urine Nitrification in Space Ghent University
URINIS aims to test the feasibility and efficiency of the urine nitrification bioprocess under space conditions on ground and in space. First the experiment requirements for the flight tests were defined (URINIS ground). Next, this URINIS-A proposal describes the flight hardware optimization and biological ground experiments that need to be performed prior to the scheduled URINIS-A experiment in the ISS. The purpose of URINIS-A is to ...
Implementation of breathomics in health and disease. University of Antwerp
The management of cardiac arrhythmias remains the largest problem in cardiac electrophysiology. The prevalence of the most frequent arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation (AF), is expected is expected to rise steeply due to the ageing population. In spite of intensive research, the mechanism of atrial fibrillation remains unclear, leading to poor results in its treatment and a lack of long-lasting success. As a result, ablation of ...
Statistical methods for studying and monitoring biological and industrial processes Ghent University
Advances in sensor and computing technology are continuously making the acquisition and storage of data more efficient. Statistical modelling and analysis can be used to extract useful insights from data, but are often accompanied with several challenges. In this project, we will develop statistical methods that are generic applicable to study and monitor biological & industrial processes .
Product design for industry 4.0 Ghent University
TodayU+2019s industry is confronted with the complexity of interconnected cyber-physical industrial product-service-consumption-production systems. There is a particular need for interdisciplinary design strategies, methods and best practices to get new insights into the involved transformation processes and digital product architecture. This project want to focus on an integral applied research: in the domain of design of new digital design ...
A probabilistic programming approach to the analysis of high-dimensional biological monitoring data. Ghent University
Plant phenotyping studies or studies that monitor of animal or human behavior often rely on the collection and analysis of high-dimensional and (spatio-) temporal datasets. In this research project, probabilistic programming approaches will be developed that allow to incorporate prior knowledge on the study objects (e.g., shape or behavior) into the data analysis pipeline to make the analysis more robust.
Whaleboats in the Forest: Subaltern Technologies of Transportation on Congo’s Inland Waterways KU Leuven
Congo’s wooden baleinières (Fr. whaleboats) are locally developed and crafted socio-technical assemblages that account for up to 50% of all transportation of goods and people on the waterways of the Congo Basin. Despite the vital role of these subaltern technologies of transportation for the livelihoods of millions, the socio-technical complexities responsible for their success have never been studied. Rooted in older boat building traditions ...
