He also designed a prosthetic limb for weightlifting during undergraduate design courses. His broader research goal is to help individuals reach their physical potential through biomechatronics and development of human performance analysis.

Outside of academics, Jason was a member of the UW Rugby team. In his free time, Jason likes to cook, weight train, and tinker with electronics.

After graduating from Wisconsin and concluding his work in the UW BADGER Lab, Jason went on to pursue a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from UC-Davis, where he is working in the RASCAL Group.
