I joined Northeastern University in Spring 2022 as an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences. My new lab will focus on designing and controlling wearable robotics (prosthetics and exoskeletons), used to rehabilitate and assist a wide range of patient populations with mobility impairments.

I am currently looking for highly motivated and intrinsically curious graduate students to join my lab!  If you are interested in joining, please contact me at m.shepherd@northeastern.edu
