Martin van Hecke designs programmable origami

Physicist Martin van Hecke is one of the most innovative researchers in the Netherlands. He studies the surprisingly complex behaviour of seemingly simple systems. Serious physics and everyday problems come together in his work. His work is an example of how fundamental and applied research can go hand in hand. In 2019 he developed ‘programmable origami’, for instance, which was published in Nature Physics.
