As a Postdoctoral Researcher in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, I work with the Kumar Lab and other GRASP Lab researchers to develop safer and more dexterous human–robot systems, including intuitively controlled high-dimensional robot platforms (e.g., assistive devices) and collaborative manipulation teams. I am also investigating the use of novel musculoskeletal sensing modalities (e.g., ultrasound-measured muscle deformation) for evaluating the efficacy of rehabilitation robotics.
In August 2021, I completed my Ph.D. thesis in UC Berkeley’s HART Lab, (part of BAIR and previously the Teleimmersion Lab) with Prof. Ruzena Bajcsy. Previously, I worked on neuromuscular modeling for lower-limb prostheses in the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics Group and on perception software for Carnegie Mellon’s humanoid robot, CHIMP.
