Jeffrey Bingham - Advisor, Lena Ting, PhD

"Stability Radius as a Method to Identify Neural Feedback Parameters to Stabilize Biomechanics"

My goal is to determine common neural feedback mechanisms that robustly control motor behavior across a variety of biomechanical contexts. I introduce the basic technique of using stability radius to compare the stability of neuromechanical systems with an example from postural control of frontal plane balance across a variety of biomechanical contexts.

"Robots for Humanity: Developing Assistive Mobile Manipulation

Assistive mobile manipulators may allow persons with severe motor impairments to independently perform self-care tasks. Enabling this is the goal of the Robots for Humanity Project. By working closely with Henry Evans, quadriplegic as the result of a brainstem stroke, we have enabled Henry to use a general-purpose mobile manipulator to shave his face with an electric razor in his own home, addressing numerous challenges along the way.
