I am broadly interested in developing high-performance electromechanical systems through the study of their underlying general theory via analytical modelling and design optimization techniques. I am then interested in applying these systems to solve problems arising in biomedical engineering – at present, my work focuses on actuator development for needle-free jet injection applications as well as the design of direct-drive actuators for assistive and rehabilitation robotics.
