Profiles in "Biomechanics" Expertise Area

  • Abbas is the director of the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems. His research interests are in applications of neural engineering techniques and technology in the area of medical rehabilitation.
  • Dounskaia investigates how the central nervous system adjusts its descending signals to the biomechanical properties of the limbs. Her teaching interests include fundamental issues of motor control and their applications.
  • Ferry's research focuses on the evolution of jaws and their function in the aquatic realm, as well as performance of biomaterials.
  • Mr. Marsit is a principal lecturer in the College of Health Solutions at ASU.
  • Lockhart’s research and publications concern the identification of injury mechanisms and quantification of sensorimotor deficits and movement disorders associated with aging and neurological disorders on fall accidents.
  • Cheryl Nickerson studies the effects of biomechanical forces on living cells, how this response is related to normal cellular homeostasis or infectious disease, and its translation to clinical and biotechnology applications.
  • Program Director, MS Strength and Conditioning
