Dr. Hunt is interested in the ways movement variability relates to movement stability and adaptability. A current focus is the role of learning in improving stability for various model systems: in humans responding to slips, in other animals like squirrels and cockroaches navigating the canopy, and in autonomous bioinspired robots. Long term goals of Dr. Hunt's research include building cognitive/biomechanical models that allow us to describe, predict and understand complex movement.
The presenter, Nate Hunt, Ph.D., and planning committee, Nick Stergiou, Ph.D., Jeffrey Kaipust, M.S., Angela Collins, B.S., and Jackie Farley, CPP have no financial conflict of interest to disclose.
