Laura Hallock
Postdoctoral researcher, MEAM

Laura is interested in using novel musculoskeletal modeling and sensing modalities to build safer and more dexterous human–robot systems, including intuitively controlled high-dimensional robot platforms (e.g., assistive devices) and collaborative manipulation teams. She has a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) from the University of California, Berkeley — where she piloted the use of ultrasound-measured muscle deformation for device control and showed its promise as a source of muscle force information for biomechanical modeling — and an SB (also in EECS) from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — where she worked on neuromuscular modeling for lower-limb prostheses. Her research interests span sensing, imaging, modeling, system identification, and motor control (both human and robotic)
