Dominic Locurto

Masters Student, MIE
Graduate Researcher, Human Robot Systems Lab
Alumni Graduate Student


Dom was an undergraduate and graduate student in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at University of Massachusetts Amherst and a member of the Human Robot Systems Laboratory (HRSL). In the lab, he contributed to the design and manufacturing of a robotic hip exoskeleton and variable stiffness treadmill. He also developed a warming tray to maintain circadian rhythms in tissue cultures in collaboration with the Kearney Lab in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

He received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2022 and 2023, respectively.

Dom is now a PhD student at Harvard University.
