I have worked on several major occupational safety and ergonomics projects at Auburn University. In those initiatives, I have had leadership roles regarding data collection, analysis, interpretation, dissemination of the results, participant recruitment and consenting, and graduate students' training on different laboratory technologies and techniques.
My current research projects fall into three main areas: biomechanics of simulated work, development of fatigue failure-based risk assessment methods, and ergonomics interventions. These projects have different scopes and expected outcomes while they share the use of the same technology (inertial measurement units).
I've also worked on projects related to exoskeleton use and evaluation of technologies during the healing process of muscle soreness.
I have experience leading groups and teaching graduate and undergraduate students, which has helped me with my team-building skills. Before starting my ergonomics career, I worked in process engineering, developing mass and energy balances for production facilities.
