Darnell Simon received his B.S. degree in Engineering Science with a biomedical engineering concentration, his M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering and his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. His doctoral work focused on the development of an equilibrium-point control based model of cerebral spasticity, fostering research interests in modeling dynamic systems, motor control and biomechanics.
He is currently working in Dr. Richard Van Emmerik's Motor Control lab investigating the consequences of soldier load and armor on the ability to perceive and act in critical situations related to survivability in combat.
