- Senior Design
- Computer Aided Design
- Fundamentals of Engineering
Kinematics, dynamics and control of robotic manipulators. Specifically path-planning, vision-based movement and coordinated movement between multiple robotic manipulators.
Kinematics and dynamics of human motion. My work has mostly dealt with the upper extremity and focused on the hand. This work is in collaboration with the Applied Research in Musculoskeletal Simulation (ARMS) lab at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
