Research Interests

  • Haptic Feedback
  • Surgical robotics
  • Upper-limb Prosthetics
  • Rehabilitation Robotics

Jeremy’s research focuses on the interface between humans and robots with a specific focus on medical applications and haptic feedback. In particular, he seeks to develop novel haptic interfaces to upper-limb prosthetics, minimally-invasive surgical robotics, and rehabilitation robots. His research sits at the intersection of engineering, biomechatronics, medicine, and psychophysics and uses methods from human perception, motor control, neurophysiology, and biomechanics.

He is a graduate of the Atlanta University Center’s Dual Degree Engineering Program, earning B.S. degrees in Applied Physics and Mechanical Engineering from Morehouse College and the University of Michigan, respectively. He also attained his M.S. and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan. He is currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is part of the Haptics Research Group in Penn’s General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception (GRASP) laboratory.
