G.V. Durandau (Guillaume)

PhD Candidate

About Me

Born in Toulon, Provence, France.

Master from ISEN-Toulon in Computer and electrical engineering.

Master from the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada in electrical engineering.

Currently a PhD candidate at the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands working on real-time EMG-driven modeling for lower-limb exoskeleton.

Fields of interest

Wearable robotic, EMG-driven modeling, neuromusculoskeletal modeling, Neurorehabilitation


Patient Rehabilitation
End Effectors
Prostheses And Implants
Embedded Systems
Lower Extremity
Signal Processing


My research interest goes from biomechanical model, human movement control to exoskleton control and human machine interface.
