Justin’s research is in physical ergonomics with a focus on human movement kinematics and posture prediction during sequential reach tasks. His ongoing work involves obtaining kinematic information and developing algorithms for predicting hand grasps and body postures when handling flexible, continuous material such as thread or wire. This research aims to determine personal and task characteristics that influence posture adaptations and performance when handling these types of materials. This knowledge will improve the realism of digital human modeling software to aid in workstation design.
