Meet the people in our department.
The human body is comprised of a variety of complex, integrated systems. An understanding of the role of these systems with respect to even a limited set of problems, such as the performance of everyday or highly skilled motor activities or the causes and resolution of bone/joint dysfunction, requires experimental approaches from a number of disciplines. As a result, a group of faculty at the University of Delaware assembled with a mission to study the body from an interdisciplinary approach. An understanding of structural integrity along with movement generation is the basis for our Biomechanics and Movement Science (BIOMS) program. The faculty come from backgrounds in physiology, biomechanics, computer science, engineering, motor control and rehabilitation science. Interests range from robotic interfaces for environmental controls for the disabled, to fracture fixation, to understanding of normal and pathological movement.
