Body-in-the-Loop Optimization

metop_previewWorking with my PhD advisor, C. David Remy, I pioneered the use of real-time measurements of metabolic cost to drive the online optimization of human assistance devices. The methods described in our early work have been adapted and used by some of the top researchers in human motion assistance.

My work inspired and enabled work by:
