I live my life fascinated by the details and importance of how people control their body movement. Growing up with this mindset as a dancer, I became very interested in finding ways to help individuals who do not currently have control over their body movements. I pursued mechanical engineering because I enjoy physics, building, and figuring out how things work. During my undergraduate studies, I found a relatively uncharted area between mechanics and dance that I decided to explore. I am excited that my current work incorporates all of my interests while expanding our current knowledge in the area of control and dynamics of human performance.
I aspire to help individuals with motor control deficits by developing training technology to communicate results of movement mechanics studies. My goal is to provide feedback to facilitate lasting improvements in movement mechanics and performance.
