Research Interests

I am interested in dexterous manipulation and motor control strategies in both human and robotic systems. My thesis work investigates how humans use a manipulation strategy of pre-grasp object interaction and develops methods for using this strategy on robot manipulators to increasing grasping capability and manipulation plan quality. My pre-thesis work focused on optimization methods for robust, subject-specific modeling of skeletal joints, specifically joints in the human hand. I have also investigated machine learning techniques for grasp classification.
