Sigrid Dupan

Research Associate

Background

I am a research assistant in the Intelligent Sensing Laboratory, working 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.


Area of Expertise

Prosthetic control, rehabilitation engineering, motor control, signal processing
