Paul Slaughter

Undergraduate Student – Mechanical Engineering
UW BADGER Lab Member: Feb. 2017 – Present

In the BADGER Lab, Paul is working to track the body segments of female ultimate frisbee players during games to characterize their movements. He is also finishing a project on the ligaments and range of motion for the canine cranio-cervical junction.

For his upcoming senior design project, he plans on developing a semi-active foot prosthesis that will be able to change stiffness to accommodate different tasks.

His broader research interests are in prostheses and motion capture.

In his free time, Paul enjoys board games, volleyball, and camping.
