UW BADGER Lab Member: Aug. 2016 – Present
B.S. – Tsinghua University, China (2016)
In the BADGER Lab, Weixin is working on long term monitoring of gait parameters using GPS and shoe mounted inertial sensors, ambulatory measurement of power transmission of prosthesis using inertial sensors and a load cell, and quaternion filtering using distributions on SO(3). His broader interests are in lower limb biomechanics, inertial navigation systems, and quaternion filtering.
Outside of the BADGER Lab, Wiexin is on the table tennis club at UW. In his free time, he enjoys playing video games.
