Our Faculty Advisor

Dr. Rebecca Friesen

Dr. Friesen joined Texas A&M University as an Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering in 2022. Previously, she worked as a postdoc in Cognitive Robotics at Delft University of Technology and received her Ph.D. from Northwestern University’s Robotics and Biosystems Center. Her haptics research group at A&M focuses on the actuation and perception of broadband tactile cues for enhanced interactions with haptic displays and virtual reality. She is particularly interested in leveraging our understanding of human somatosensation for efficient haptic signal representation and design. She has been participating in SWE outreach activities as a member since 2022, and is the student chapter advisor at A&M since 2024.
