My students and I create mathematical models and computer simulations, develop new analytical techniques for movement characterization, and conduct experiments with human volunteers to validate the models and obtain model parameters.  In addition to our contributions to the scientific knowledge of human movement, we also use our engineering skills to design and build innovative devices to assist people with disabilities.
