Seeking to use wearable and portable sensing for widespread biomechanical assessment outside of gait laboratories. To that end, I leverage machine learning principles to extract biomechanical information from IMU data and cellphone-based videos, study sensor placement errors, and search for optimal sensor configurations. Target applications include walking gait monitoring, gait training, and injury prevention.
