About Our Laboratory

Image by Salwan Georges, Detroit Free Press

Our lab employs wireless sensors to measure human motion in the contexts of athletic performance, soldier performance, human health and rehabilitation, and worker safety and health.  Our research translates data harvested from tiny inertial sensors to yield quantitative metrics of human performance for myriad applications. In a separate line of research, we study the mechanics of single molecule DNA and DNA/protein interactions and the mechanics of viruses.
