Glenn Mathijssen was born in Merksem, Belgium in 1989 and raised in Essen. He received the degree in the study of Mechanical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in 2012. The focus of his PhD research was the novel compliant actuator: the Series-Parallel Elastic Actuator. During my PhD on Series-Parallel Elastic Actuators, I've studied various field such as locking mechanisms, compliant elements, scaling laws etc. In 2019 I was honoured to receive the FITCE Belgian Young ICT Personality Award.
Currently, I'm interested in collaborative robots and Industry 4.0 technologies. More specifically, I'm interested in Food Robotics as well through the venture ALBERTS .
