My research uses mechanical principles to study how people move during activities of daily living and athletic maneuvers. I am interested in using this information to develop technology and clinical interventions that improve movement mechanics and reduce the risk of injury. This area of research and development has also been an effective way for engaging students in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math).
I am currently the Director of Motion Analysis for the Division of Sports Medicine at Rush University Medical Center (RUMC) in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. Prior to joining RUMC, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan.
Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California, 2015
M.S. Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California, 2012
B.E. Mechanical Engineering, The Cooper Union, 2010
"Through outstanding academic programs in architecture, art and engineering, and a Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art prepares talented students to make enlightened contributions to society."
