Erin is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at UC Berkeley. She received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University and spent time exploring a variety of research fields prior to starting graduate school. Her current research interests include assistive technology and robotic systems for augmenting human ability. She aims to study ways to improve activities of daily living in populations with limited mobility. Outside of the lab, she can often be found on a soccer field, skiing in the mountains, behind a camera, or with her head down over a crossword puzzle.
Erin is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow.
