The Human Performance Seminar Series (836) from the Center for Ergonomics is open to all U-M Industrial and Operations Engineering graduate students and faculty are especially encouraged to attend.

Considerations in Exoskeleton Human Factors

Exoskeletons have the potential to augment, assist, and rehabilitate motor function. To achieve these goals, the system must fit the operator statically, dynamically, and cognitively. This seminar discusses the characteristics of fit and the challenges in creating exoskeletons that support motor function in operational environments.

Leia Stirling is an Associate Professor in Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan. Her research quantifies human performance and human-machine fluency to assess performance augmentation, advance exoskeleton control algorithms, mitigate injury risk, and provide relevant feedback to subject matter experts across domains. She received her B.S. (2003) and M.S. (2005) in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her Ph.D. (2008) in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT. She was a postdoctoral researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School (2008-2009), on the Advanced Technology Team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering (2009-2012), then an Assistant Professor at MIT (2013 – 2019). She joined the faculty at the University of Michigan in 2019.
