Hi, I'm Samuel — and I make technology to evaluate, assist, and rehabilitate human movement.

I am a biomechanical engineer focused on rehabilitation engineering and human-centered product design. I develop new technologies to address movement disorders that develop after injury, such as stroke, amputation, or traumatic brain injury. I’m particularly interested in solving engineering problems for the hospital & health care industry with innovative and emerging technology, such as virtual reality, ultrasound, and noninvasive neural stimulation.
