My personal homepage:

I'm interested in building powered medical devices to help people with movement disorders. I was born with one letter wrong in my genetic code, and as a result I have a degenerative neuropathy called Charcot Marie Tooth, which is slowly destroying my peripheral motor neurons. Currently, I have no motor control below the knee, and my thighs and hands are getting weaker. My goal is to be able to hike, run, and climb as well as healthy individuals, by creating the right assistive devices.

In practice, that means I've worked on solving problems around human motion analysis (, differentiable physics simulation (, hardware prototypes, and low latency exoskeleton control software.
