Neuromuscular Function and Adaptation
Prosthetic and orthotic design optimization
Sports Biomechanics and Equipment Design
Acute and Overuse Injury Mechanisms
Dr. Neptune's research interests are in the areas of musculoskeletal and sport biomechanics and neuromotor control of normal and pathological human movement. His research integrates musculoskeletal modeling and dynamic simulation techniques with experimental data to analyze a variety of locomotor tasks. Additional research is directed at improving orthotic and prosthetic designs using additive manufacturing techniques to improve performance in pathological and amputee populations.
Now that you've used EUREKA to identify a faculty member whose research interests match your own, read about getting involved in research at The University of Texas at Austin.
The Office of Undergraduate Research recommends that you attend an info session before contacting faculty members about research opportunities. We'll cover the steps to getting involved, tips for contacting faculty, funding possibilities, and options for course credit.
If you aren't able to attend an info session, contact the Office of Undergraduate Research to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
