Postdoctoral Researcher, Human Robot System Lab and UMass Integrative Locomotion Lab
Mark is a postdoctoral research associate working jointly with Prof. Meghan Huber in the Human Robot Systems Laboratory and Prof. Wouter Hoogkamer in the UMass Intergrative Locomotion Lab (UMILL). His research focuses on developing prosthetic and wearable robotic designs that work with the user to improve outcomes, using musculoskeletal simulations and experimental interventions to investigate new design paradigms.
Mark received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2014. He received his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2016 and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 2021, both under Prof. Frank Sup in the Mechatronics and Robotics Research Lab (MRRL) at the University of Masschusetts Amherst.
Mark enjoys tabletop roleplaying, historical fencing, and playing fiddle music on every instrument except the fiddle.
