Dr. Emily Rogers-Bradley joined the University of Calgary as an Assistant Professor in 2023. Dr. Rogers-Bradley is the director of the Adaptive Bionics Lab, researching the design of quasi-passive prostheses and exoskeletons that adapt to speed, terrain, and ground surface for walking and running optimization. Her research merges precision machine design, biomechanics, and robotics for the development of new types of prostheses and exoskeletons.
Prior to coming to Calgary she obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in February 2023. She received an MSc in Mechanical Engineering from MIT in 2019 and a BSc in Biomedical Engineering from Harvard University in 2015. She has also spent several years in industry as a Mechatronics Engineer at Ekso Bionics, where she designed robotic exoskeletons for stroke and spinal cord injury rehabilitation. Dr. Rogers-Bradley is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering.
Areas of Research
We design and develop robotic prosthetic devices to restore and augment function for people with lower limb amputations.
We develop wearable exoskeletons/orthoses to correct gait abnormalities and enhance performance.
We study the biomechanics of human gait to better understand important functionalities of wearable robotic devices as well as assessing impact of developed devices.
