B.S. in Bioengineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and is currently a Vanderbilt University PhD candidate in Mechanical Engineering. Her project, “Wearable Tech Solutions for Overuse Injury Prevention in Runners” used Brooks’ “Run Signature” as a baseline for habitual motion to review running biomechanics and explore natural habitual joint motion. She quantified natural deviations in habitual motion to assess injury with support from her Vanderbilt sponsor and the research team on-site at Brooks Running in Seattle. She explored the use of wearables (e.g. pressure sensing insoles, inertial measurement units (IMUs), muscle activity sensors, etc.) for identifying when runners deviate from habitual motion paths–a promising avenue for notifying runners when they are at heightened risk of injury.
