Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • My primary research area is biomechatronics with a focus on upper limb prosthetic design. More specifically, I design and manufacture electromechanical devices, implement novel human-machine interfaces, and integrate closed-loop control systems with sensory feedback mechanisms. I have two main research objectives: 1) to develop clinically relevant prosthetic devices and 2) to improve the quality of life for Veterans and others with amputation.
