TNSRE serves the community of biomedical engineers and clinical researchers who work at the intersection of neuroscience and physical medicine. We publish novel approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, for practicing clinicians, and for everyday use.
Arthur Petron (SM ‘10) received the B.E. degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008, where he is currently the Vice President of Engineering at Circular2, LLC in Cambridge, MA after having received his Ph.D. from the Biomechatronics group at the Center for Extreme Bionics at the Media Lab. His research interests lie in robotics design for interfacing with the human body, which emphasis on mechanical measurement and attachment to the human body.
