Προσωπικό Προφίλ

Ο Λουκάς Σ. Λουκά κατέχει Δίπλωμα Μηχανολόγου Μηχανικού (1992) από το Εθνικό Μετσόβιο Πολυτεχνείο, Ελλάδα. Μετά συνέχισε τις μεταπτυχιακές του σπουδές στο Πανεπιστήμιο του Μίσιγκαν από όπου αποφοίτησε με M.S.E. το 1994 και Ph.D. το 1998, και τα δύο στη Μηχανολογία Μηχανική. Συνέχισε να εργάζεται στο τμήμα Μηχανολογίας Μηχανικής στο Πανεπιστήμιο του Μίσιγκαν πρώτα σαν μεταδιδακτορικός συνεργάτης μέχρι το 2000. Τότε εντάχθηκε στο μόνιμο ερευνητικό προσωπικό του τμήματος Μηχανολογίας Μηχανικής σαν Βοηθός Ερευνητικός Επιστήμονας όπου διενεργούσε έρευνα και συμβούλευε σπουδαστές στο τομέα της δυναμικής και ελέγχου ευφυών συστημάτων οχημάτων στο Automotive Research Center με βάση το Πανεπιστήμιο του Μίσιγκαν. Προσχώρησε στο ακαδημαϊκό προσωπικό του Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου τον Ιανουάριο του 2004 όπου τώρα κατέχει τη θέση του Αναπληρωτή Καθηγητή. Τα ερευνητικά του ενδιαφέροντα εστιάζονται στη περιοχή της μοντελοποίησης φυσικών συστημάτων, συστήματα απτικών διεπιφανειών, ρομποτική αποκατάσταση, μείωση μοντέλων συστημάτων μεγάλης κλίμακας, θεωρία διαγραμμάτων δεσμών, δυναμική πολλαπλών στερεών σωμάτων, μοντελοποίηση και προσομοίωση με τη βοήθεια υπολογιστή. Ενδιαφέρεται για την αυτοματοποίηση της διαδικασίας για τη δημιουργία αποδοτικών δυναμικών μοντέλων για τη χρήση στη διαδικασία σχεδιασμού και ελέγχου συστημάτων. Ενδιαφέρεται επίσης για την ανάπτυξη συστημάτων απτικών διεπιφανειών και ρομποτικών συστημάτων για την αξιολόγηση και αποκατάσταση ατόμων με νευρολογικές παθήσεις.

His research interests and activities lie in the areas of physical system modeling and model reduction of large scale systems, bond graph theory, modeling of automotive systems, robotic systems and haptic interfaces for rehabilitation, human modeling and biomechanics, multi-body dynamics, and computer aided modeling and simulation. He is an active member of the bond graph research community and organizes focused sessions at modeling related conferences. More specifically, his research focuses on the following two themes: 

Physical System Modeling: The development of systematic procedures for generating efficient yet accurate dynamic system models for use in the control and design of dynamic systems. The procedure of dynamic system modeling is enhanced with the use of modeling metrics and algorithms that assist engineers in selecting the physical phenomena that contribute the most to specific system dynamic responses. This approach reduces the time and cost for developing models of dynamic systems, and therefore enables engineers to focus on the more critical issues of design and control.

Rehabilitation Systems: The development of novel and interactive robotic systems for the functional rehabilitation and evaluation of the upper limbs of people with neurological diseases. The resulting methodologies are implemented in haptic interface devices, through which the user can manipulate virtual objects that are modeled with realistic physical and interactive properties. Applied therapeutic forces are designed in order to optimize the benefits of neuroplasticity. Such rehabilitation systems can increase user motivation and make therapy sessions enjoyable, thus increasing even more the efficiency of a rehabilitation system. The advantages of haptic interfaces are also used for the assessment of upper limb motion through objective and quantitative metrics.

Loucas S. Louca received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 1992. He then moved to the University of Michigan where he received his M.S.E. in 1994 and Ph.D. in 1998, both in Mechanical Engineering. He continued to work in the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Michigan first as a Research Fellow until 2000. He then joined the research faculty of the Mechanical Engineering department as an Assistant Research Scientist where he was contacting research and advising students in the area of intelligent vehicle system dynamics and control within the multi-university Automotive Research Center. He joined the faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cyprus in 2004 where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests lie in the areas of physical system modeling, haptic interface systems, robotic rehabilitation, model reduction of large scale systems, bond graph theory, multi-body dynamics, computer aided modeling and simulation. He is interested in automating the process of generating efficient dynamic models for use in the system design and control process. He is also interested in the development of haptic interface and robotic systems for the assessment and rehabilitation of people with neurological disorders.
