Biography

My PhD on Biomedical Engineering involved using a specialised tool (high-density surface electromyography, HDsEMG) to understand the muscle activity from the forearm to identifying the surface electromyographic patterns involved and correlating them with specific hand movements leading to improvements in the control of a myoelectric driven prosthesis, specifically of the thumb.

Further experience (as a postdoctoral researcher) has allowed me to develop my portfolio in:

  • Orthotic design and development for manufacture; and
  • Analysis and interpretation of electrophysiological signals (more specifically signals from the muscles, HDsEMG) and apply them to further our understanding of neurophysiological involvement during abnormal movements or failure.
