This month’s featured research is Dr. Meghan Huber. Meghan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering in the College of Engineering. She also has adjunct appointments in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and the Manning College of Information and Computer Sciences. Meghan runs the Human Robot Systems Laboratory, which focuses on understanding how humans and robots can learn from the physical interactions of one another. She has a recent paper in the Journal of Neurophysiology, which examines energy expenditures during human walking by simulating responses on a split treadmill. She applies some of this knowledge to wearable exoskeletons as described in a recent BioRxiv preprint.
