During my last year of undergraduate studies at New Jersey Institute of Technology, I undertook a Senior Capstone project involving the design and fabrication of an EMG-controlled prosthetic arm. Over the course of the year, working with Dr. Ghaith Androwis on this project, a successfully functional prototype was created. This lead us to giving talks at conferences, and winning awards for our work. Additionally, this project also opened the door for me to continue working with Dr. Ghaith Androwis on a project focused on the fabrication and experimental testing of a 3D-printed lower extremity robotic exoskeleton. After improving my knowledge and skills for another year contributing to that project, I was hired as a research assistant at Kessler Foundation, and am continuing my research in the areas of rehabilitation and wearable robotics.
Throughout my academic and professional career, I have worked on various research projects in varying areas. This has lead me to discover that my main interests lie in rehabilitation, and wearable robotics.
