Complex motor learning, haptic feedback, surgical robotics

Mary Kate (she/her) graduated from Georgia Tech with a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Computer Science. She is now pursuing a PhD in Bioengineering in Professor Allison Okamura's CHARM lab, considering the complex neurological processes at play during motor learning in the context of teleoperated surgical robotics. Ultimately, she hopes to learn about how we learn to execute new, complicated motor tasks. Outside of lab, she enjoys reading, crossword puzzles, and hanging out with her cat, Grapes.
