Research Theme

Research Interests

My research involves developing computer-based representations of the human musculoskeletal and nervous system anatomy that can be used to quantify and visualize the spatial and geometric relationships amongst the nerves, muscles and bones (including anatomical variation).

Such anatomical maps constitute an important blueprint for creating neuromusculoskeletal models, as well as a reference for interpreting sensor data, thus facilitating improved understanding of the flow of information between the central nervous system and external world.

Reference anatomy and neuromusculoskeletal models also provide utility for applications such as surgery planning and the design of sensors and assistive devices.
