About Me

Eric is a PhD candidate at Northwestern University in the department of Biomedical Engineering. He works under the direction of Dr. Levi Hargrove in the Neural Engineering for Prosthetics & Orthotics Lab, one of the labs within the Center for Bionic Medicine.

Eric's research focuses on merging two traditionally separate fields: control of robotic prosthetic limbs and motor learning and adaptation. In particular, his work aims to better understand how the prosthesis and the user communicate back and forth, and how to improve this communication loop to refine a user's fine control over the prosthetic limb.
