Greg earns this year’s ASB Founders’ Award!
Huge congratulations to Greg on being named the 2023 American Society of Biomechanics Founders’ Award winner! This award goes to one scientist each year to recognize “scientific accomplishment in biomechanics and excellence in mentoring”. Check out the link below to…
A walk down the (commencement) aisle for new and soon-to-be PoWeR PhDs!
Congratulations to Drs. Jordyn Schroeder, Pawel Golyski, Jonathan Gosyne, and Laksh Kumar Punith and soon-to-be PhDs Lindsey Trejo and Ben Shafer who celebrated graduation at commencement this weekend! We had a blast celebrating with a weekend of festivities!
Now presenting Dr. Schroeder!!
Huge congratulations to Dr. Jordyn Schroeder on successfully defending her dissertation and earning her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. Jordyn’s dissertation is titled “Long-term effects of altered foot-ankle mechanics on locomotion neuromechanics and energetics”. Up next, Jordyn is heading to McKinsey.
New paper – The muscle work loop paradigm
We’re excited to share our new paper “Perturbing the muscle work loop paradigm to unravel the neuromechanics of unsteady locomotion”, out now in the Journal of Experimental Biology with Dr. Simon Sponberg and Dr. Emily Abbott! In this, we review…
Jenny featured in JEB’s ECR Spotlight series
Jenny was interviewed for the Journal of Experimental Biology’s Early Career Researcher Spotlight series! Check out the interview here. This is associated with her new work on linking whole-body angular momentum and step placement during perturbed human walking in JEB.
New JEB paper on perturbations, balance, and recovery strategies
Our new paper Linking whole-body angular momentum and step placement during perturbed human walking is out now in the Journal of Experimental Biology! The paper is also accompanied by an open-source data set with 3000+ perturbations! This currently includes markers…
Amro wins NSF GRFP!
Huge congratulations to Amro Alshareef on being awarded an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship! Amro is a second year PhD Student in the Robotics program. Congrats and much deserved!
Chatting about muscles and tendons at Zoo Biomechanics Day!
We had tons of fun imaging muscles and tendons and chatting about human movement at the Biomechanics Day: Animals in Motion event at Zoo Atlanta! One of many awesome events part of ATL Science Festival this year.
“Unleashing the Power of Exoskeletons” at ATL Science Tavern
Lindsey Trejo and Ben Shafer will be giving a talk tonight (Saturday, Feb. 25) at 7pm at Manuel’s Tavern as part of the the ATL Science Tavern series. This series is open to the public and meant for non-expert audiences,…
New article out in Science Robotics!
We’re excited to share our new work “Exoskeletons need to react faster than physiological responses to improve standing balance” in Science Robotics. We found that exoboot assistance that responds faster than human reflexes augment standing balance, allowing users to withstand…
