I am currently interested in understanding how lower limb prosthetic devices interact with human physiology. I feel that understanding these interactions will facilitate better understanding of health effects secondary to lower limb amputation such as low back pain and intact knee osteoarthritis. My general topic areas of interest include:
- Lower limb prostheses
- Biomechanics of persons with lower limb amputation
I was born and raised in Hampton Bays, NY, on the east end of Long Island. I completed my Sc.B. in Biomedical Engineering at Brown University in 2015. Afterwards I worked for two years as a research engineer in the Research & Development Service in the Department of Rehabilitation at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. I am a huge fan of hiking and a definite foodie.
