Anika Kao, Chang, Xu, and Greg Gerling's paper “Using Digital Image Correlation to Quantify Skin Deformation with Von Frey Monofilaments” has been nominated for a Best Paper Award in the IEEE Transactions on Haptics Short Paper category at the upcoming 2022 IEEE Haptics Symposium. In addition, Shan Xu's paper was also accepted to this same journal paper category, and is entitled "Subtle Contact Nuances in the Delivery of Human-to-Human Touch Distinguish Emotional Sentiment." These papers involve unique imaging technologies of skin deformation and human-to-human contact.
Bingxu Li and Greg Gerling's paper “Individual Differences Impacting Skin Deformation and Tactile Discrimination with Compliant Elastic Surfaces” has been nominated for the Best Paper Award at the upcoming 2021 IEEE World Haptics Conference. This honor was accorded to the top ~15% of accepted papers based on reviews.
Both Bingxu and Merat also recently had papers accepted to the 2021 IEEE World Haptics Symposium. Looking forward to their presentation!

Thank you to all who could attend and for our great discussions!
Next up is his thesis defense! Chang has made several very nice contributions, especially his recent 2021 PLOS Computational Biology Paper.
