Felicia is a GEM Fellow in the Bioengineering PhD program (Home School: Mechanical Engineering). Her research is investigating internal joint loading of the lower back and knee during manual handling tasks and how exoskeleton mitigation impacts injury risk. She hopes this work will influence the improvement of working conditions for manual labor in different industry fields. In her free time, she likes to be involved with anything dog related, especially playing with her beagle, Falcon. She is a retired golfer and still actively plays, and also enjoys reading, hiking, and spending time with her family in Columbus, Ohio.
