Naser is currently working at General Motors. While in the lab, Naser developed computational models of human movements in order to study the effect of neuromuscular disorders such as cerebral palsy and stroke on the human motor control system. He is interested in the design of rehabilitation robots and neuroprostheses that can accelerate the rehabilitation process and assist individuals with neuromuscular disorders. Naser’s previous research has explored the biomechanics of reaching, steering, cycling, and curling to better understand the underlying physiological relationship between the neural excitations and the resulting kinetics and kinematics.
