Degree Information: 
D.Sc. Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering

My teaching and research interests and activities are centered around biomedical device design, and especially Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technologies. My students and I conduct research that is used to better understand the factors that are important to patients and clinicians from a design, modeling and analysis perspective. We utilize a number of computational strategies including Finite Element Methods, as well as experimental evaluation of existing and proposed devices, to gain better understanding and provide evidence of outcomes related to device use.
