Yanxin Zhang's research is concentrated on the development of biomechanical methods to simulate, evaluate and optimize human motions.

Two major interests are:
  • To apply motion capture techniques to study sports activities and use simulation and optimization methods to find movement patterns which can enhance activity performance and reduce injury occurrence.
  • To develop neuron-muscular-skeletal models to investigate muscle coordination during multi-joint limb movements and the underlying neural control mechanisms, which could have potential to create the theoretical basis of developing effective approach for rehabilitation and functional restoration after neuromuscular injury.
