If you have a question about this talk, please contact Anna Walczyk.

Digital human modeling and simulation plays an important role in product design, prototyping, manufacturing, sports biomechanics, and other areas. It reduces the number of design iterations and increases the safety and design quality of products. In this talk, I will first briefly review the state of art of digital human models, then I will summarize research projects carried out in my research lab. The first area is human-centric engineering by investigating the optimization-based digital human models to assist design and engineering, slips and falls. Applications include driver accommodation study and special population posture and motion prediction. The second area is healthcare engineering by developing novel predictive models to assess personal protective equipment and spine biomechanics.
