Megan’s proposed work titled Data-driven methods for improving physics-based models of human locomotion was approved by her Ph.D. committee. Way to go Megan!
Congratulations to Michael Rosenberg for being awarded the Komor New Investigator Award at the 2021 Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS) at ISB. This award is presented at each symposium to recognize the best paper by a new investigator. Way to go Michael!
Congratulations to Dr. Michael Rosenberg on earning his Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering! Dr. Rosenberg’s PhD thesis dissertation was titled Modeling and predicting subject-specific response to ankle exoskeletons. Congratulations and the best of luck as you move forward at Emory University.
The College of Engineering Awards acknowledges the extraordinary efforts of the college’s teaching and research assistants, staff, and faculty members. Momona Yamagami was selected for the 2021 Student Research Award. Congratulations Momona!
Momona Yamagami is an innovative researcher who focuses on developing novel accessible technologies with translational impact. In her first year, she helped build an interdisciplinary research program that blended neuroengineering, human-computer interaction and rehabilitation at the Amplifying Motion and Performance (AMP) Lab to evaluate and mitigate symptoms of Parkinson’s disease using virtual reality. Dedicated to building accessible and inclusive technology, she is working to apply control theory and artificial intelligence to improve device accessibility for people with and without limited motion.
“Momona is a truly exceptional student with a demonstrated history of leadership in research and education. We cannot wait to see where Momona steers her career trajectory and research contributions.”
