Lindsey Lewallen

Education: B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
Currently Pursuing: M.S. in Mechanical Engineering.

Research: My research seeks to determine how subject-specific motor control impairments limits biomechanical function execution and mobility capability in individuals post-stroke.

Corey Pew

Education: B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington.
Currently Pursuing: Post-doc.

Research: My research focuses on the gait biomechanics of lower limb amputees. My specific interests include the development and analysis of prosthetic components to help improve the mobility, comfort and efficiency of impaired individuals during activities of daily living.

Sarah Roelker

Education: B.S. in Biomedical Engineering, and M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ohio State University.

Currently Pursuing: Post-doc.

Research:
My research focuses on identifying the neuromuscular and biomechanical mechanisms that contribute to walking and balance performance in individuals with post-stroke hemiparesis.
