In the Biomechanical Design Research Laboratory (BDRL) at Michigan State University my students and I apply engineering techniques and principles to the human body.  Our work includes in vivo experimentation, methods development, modeling, and device development. Specifically, we study kinetic and kinematic interactions that occur between people and devices, or during clinical procedures.
