I lead the  Computational Biomechanics Lab in the department of Biomechanical Engineering here at TU Delft. The lab's mission is to develop computational models and algorithms that enable the acquisition, analysis and study of human and animal movement. We are interested in methods that quantify and explain the biological basis of movement from the pathological to the exceptional. 
Before joining TU Delft, I was the architect of the  OpenSim modeling and simulation libraries at Stanford University for nearly a decade after completing a Simbios distinguished postdoctoral fellowship in Bioengineering. I received my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in Biomedical engineering and my predoctoral degrees in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo.


I build neuromuscular and musculoskeletal models and develop simulation tools to obtain deeper insights into human and animal movement. I combine expertise in multibody dynamics, muscle-tendon mechanics, neuromotor control and anatomy to create insightful and reproducible models.  I leverage decades of software engineering experience to implement algorithms and simulators that enable new lines of research in movement science, assistive robotics and wearable sensing.
