Clark Center, Room S342
I serve as the Associate Director the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research, an NIH-funded center at Stanford University that brings state-of-the-art engineering tools to rehabilitation scientists. I also serve as the Director of Data Science for our Mobilize Center, where my focus is using data science tools to understand and improve treatment for conditions that limit human movement. In addition, I am the Research and Development Manager for the OpenSim software project, guiding the project’s development team and serving as the voice of the software user/researcher.
