Arthur is a Ph.D. candidate in the Biomechatronics Group. He specializes in robotic measurement systems for biomedical system identification. Arthur seeks to increase the efficiency of productivity in order to allow people to get more, higher quality, better thought-out ideas transformed into real things. The purpose of this is to increase the quality of life of as many people as possible by 1) making their goals easier to attain, and consequently 2) making those effected by these goals have the ability to live life more in line with their desires. In short, he tries to make it easier for people to get things done. In the Biomechatronics Group, this is done by making devices that help create more comfortable sockets for those with amputations.

We suck at attaching objects to people: using a novel robotic measurement device and multimaterial 3D printing to create more comfortable prosthetic sockets. This talk will help you understand the basics of how hardware and software communicate, why to choose one method over another, and what the future looks like for connecting hardware and software together in this constantly changing space.
