Master’s Student – Biomedical Engineering (Biomechanics)
UW BADGER Lab Member: Spring 2016 – Present
B.S. – Biomedical Engineering (Biomechanics), University of Wisconsin-Madison (2018)
In the BADGER Lab, Hannah is working with Jenna towards a real-time “freezing of gait” detection and intervention system for Parkinson’s patients. As an extension of the FES intervention system, Hannah and Jenna are also conducting a fundamental research study to determine if varying the frequency of periodic electrical stimulation to different calf muscles can influence a healthy subject’s normal gait patterns.
Outside of the BADGER Lab, Hannah is a Discovery Outreach Intern at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, where she develops and teaches STEM-related field trip sessions. Following her Master’s degree, Hannah hopes to work in the Research and Development of orthopedic or prosthetic devices.
