Dr Sigrid Dupan

Research Associate


I am a research associate in the Intelligent Sensing Laboratory, and work within the team of Dr. Kianoush Nazarpour. My research focuses on closed-loop prosthetic control. My main research interest is understanding the underlying neural correlates of hand movements, and how this can aid progress in myoelectric controlled prostheses.
