Computer-Aided Biomimetics Computational tools to support engineers during Biologically Inspired Design

As an industrial designer and researcher I am interested in developing computational tools in support of design. I recently finished my PhD on Computer-Aided Biomimetics, where I applied Natural Language Processing and Deep Learning techniques to support a systematic approach to Biomimetics (solving engineering problems through the abstraction, transfer and application of knowledge from biological models). You'll find some of my publications below.
