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.
GEEN 1017 - Engineering Drawing.
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020
Introduces CAD software, relevant concepts, including orthographic projection, sections, engineering drawing, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, and rapid manufacturing methods. Final design project involves rapid prototyping. Not recommended for AREN or CVEN majors.
GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
GEEN 3400 - Invention and Innovation
Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020
Introduction to business development and product innovation with a hands-on approach. Students explore the invention process, hone their engineering design skills, and explore the initial stages of entrepreneurship (patenting, intellectual property, marketing research, and raising capital). Student teams design, create, and test a commercial product, and exhibit at an end-of-semester design expo.
