Caitlyn Seim

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute
Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Department of Mechanical Engineering

Dr. Seim works at the intersection of computing devices and the body, aiming to define new methods in healthcare and human augmentation.  Her background is in electrical engineering, which enables her to design physical computing devices and hardware.  During her Ph.D. at the Georgia Institute of Technology, she specialized in wearable technology and haptics (technology for touch and force feedback).  She combines this background with her training in neurology and rehabilitation to design and test new technology-based interventions to improve sensorimotor function.  Caitlyn Seim currently works in the Mechanical Engineering Department with Allison Okamura and Maarten Lansberg.
