My research interests include biological systems modeling, medical instrumentation, and the teaching of biomedical engineering design using assistive technology. Specific interests include using measurements of thoracic sound transmission to determine noninvasively some physical characteristics of the lungs and great vessels. Recent instrumentation projects include the measurement of surgeons's hand tremor, development of a soft tissue shear force sensor, and determination of foot forces in the ballet pointe shoe. Using real clients in both individual and team projects we have developed a number of devices to help people with disability.
