Graduate student and Lab Manager for the Neuromechanics Research Core, Kinesiology
Academic Degree: 
Campus: UMD | Building: School of Public Health | Room: 0110C

Faculty Advisor: 

I did my undergraduate work at Purdue University, and graduated in 2015 with a BS in physics and mathematics, and a minor in biology. I then went on to get my MS at Iowa State University under Dr. Timothy R. Derrick in Kinesiology with a focus in lower limb biomechanics. My thesis used inverse dynamics and finite element modeling to analyze bone strain changes before and after a long distance run. I am a third year PhD student under Dr. Jae Kun Shim, with a particular focus on how the attachment method of the prosthesis to the residual limb influences locomotion and movement.
