Welcome to my Website!

I am a Ph.D. Candidate of Biomedical Engineering working under Prof. Gregg at the Locomotor Control Systems Laboratory in the University of Texas at Dallas. I am currently working on this website. Pardon my progress.


My research looks into reverse engineering human locomotion. I am trying to understand how the neuromuscular system parameterizes human gait over time. I am trying to answer one question. Does a single mechancial variable can parameterize the gait cycle? Finding the answer to this question will improve the understanding of the human's neuromuscular system and will enhance robotic prosthetic legs.

Current Projects

Besides my research, I try to do other things. Scientific outreaching, volunteering, etc... You can take a look at the different projects I am working on now here.


Here you will find interesting website and resources I have found over the years. In addition, I give some tips on how to apply for a Ph.D, what are the procedures to get a fellowship, how to pass your QE. Furthermore, I will be posting the notes from all the classes I have taken during my Ph.D. All the way from neuroscience, to advance math, to nonlinear control systems.
