Students from the Motor Behavior Group Mitchell, Chuyi, HyeYoung and Zihan presented their work at the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) 42nd conference held at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, in August 2018.
Mitchell Tillman recently graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Purdue. Congratulations Mitchell! He presented his research on “Mechanisms of preparation for task switching in a finger force production task” [Poster] [Abstract].
Mitchell is gearing up for his Master’s in Biomechanics at Purdue. He plans to finish his degree in one year. He is working with Dr. Ambike.
Chuyi Cui presented her work on “Lower limb joint angle variance as a function of obstacle height during obstacle crossing” [Poster][Abstract]. Chuyi works with Dr. Rietdyk and Dr. Ambike.
Chuyi was selected as a finalist for the Doctoral Competition at this national-level ASB conference. Her abstract was one among the 12 selected out about 680 submissions.
HyeYoung Cho presented her work on “Young adults are surprisingly bad at walking: Sex differences in the circumstances associated with falls“ [Abstract]. HyeYoung works with Dr. Rietdyk.
Zihan Yang presented his work on “The contribution of frontal hip power to slope walking“ [Poster][Abstract]. Zihan also works with Dr. Rietdyk.
