PhD Ohio State University Mechanical Engineering 2012

Research Interests

Movement in biological systems. Focuses on age-related changes in human prehensile behavior and on human locomotion. Interested in (a) quantifying manual dexterity, (b) in measuring and modeling mechanics at the fingertip-object interface, and the (c) control of movement stability to facilitate adaptive movements.

Teaching Interests

Biomechanics of sports; Computational methods for movement analyses; Matlab programming for behavior scientists
