My research interests are in Human Augmentation Systems,Biomechanical Principles of Human Motion, and Physiologically based Control Systems. Currently, I'm researching legged locomotion for humanoid robotics and more specifically modeling neural network control for swing leg motion.
I am an NSF Graduate Research Fellow and PhD student of Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. I am working under Dr. Hartmut Geyer of the CMU Robotics Institute. I am a veteran of the US Army and was recently interviewed for Science Magazine: Science Careers, for returning to school after my time in the military.

I'm interested in developing robotic human augmentation devices to help people that require assistance in daily life. I also am interested in developing human augmentations devices to aid soldiers in manual tasks.
I am interested in studying the underlying mechanisms of human motion in order to develop new technologies to aid and assist humans.
I am interested in modeling realistic and physiologically correct human locomotion and control systems that would that enable the locomotion.
