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.
Jeremy D. Brown
Jeremy D. Brown (M’11) received the Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, in 2014. He is now a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics and the Haptics Group in the GRASP Lab at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA. His research focuses on the interface between humans and robots with a specific focus on medical applications and haptic feedback. Dr. Brown was honored to receive several awards including the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, the Best Student Paper award from the IEEE Haptics Symposium in 2012, and the Penn Postdoctoral Fellowship for Academic Diversity.
