Cedar Urwyler joined the Interface Group for his Bachelor Thesis in February 2015. He studies for an ETH Bachelor degree in Interdisciplinary Sciences. His research investigates the possibility of
mechanosensing in primary neuron cells using a micro-electrode array. Cedar successfully completed his work on June 2015. He plans to have an intermediate year during which he will do civil service and internships and then continue his studies at the ETH.

The Interface Group at the Scientifica
The current issue of the
UZH magazine summarizes how central the topic of Big Data is in current research. Enormous amounts of data are being collected in various scientific projects, with our own Willy Kuo contributing to this increase in information. As a foretaste of our group’s part in the Zurich Science Days, Willy gave an interview on his work with very large computed tomography datasets.
