Through our research, we seek to better understand the mechanics, energetics, and control of bipedal locomotion. In much of our work, we use a modeling and simulation approach in conjunction with optimal control theory. Thus, we have invested considerable time in developing and validating computational models of the musculoskeletal system. The scope of our research spans from the restoration of gait in disability to the evolutionary basis for human bipedalism. Here you can read about our current research and the tools we use.
