Ramón E. Sánchez Cruz
PhD Candidate, 6th year, MechE
I earned my undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. As a PhD student in the AAL, I am working on developing haptic feedback systems for assistive technologies. My research interest spans from haptic devices embedded in assistive technologies to fully wearable and self-contain haptic devices that could be placed on different parts of the body.
