After many years in the manufacturing industry performing multiple Engineering and Operations Management positions, I decided to direct my career back to a technical path. Through my experience in industrial settings, I developed a strong interest on preventing manufacturing worker injuries due to repetitive motion. BRMHL research related to haptic devices is a great fit for me, as it deals not only with the repetitive injuries problem, but also with the continuous industry need to improve the quality/productivity of the production systems.
