- Assistant Research Professor
Dr. Jonathan Miller is an interdisciplinary scientist with expertise across several disciplines. He has published research on neuromuscular physiology, biomechanics, materials science, sensor engineering, wearable technology, and other topics. Currently his focus is on the development of smart materials for soft sensors, soft robotics, and wearable technology. He has developed a soft, magnetic 3D force sensor and is exploring its use in wearable technology such as shoe insoles and helmets. Shoe insoles with this type of sensing capabilities can enable high-fidelity gait measurement that doesn’t require gait laboratory equipment or trained personnel and provides an opportunity for advancing and scaling gait screening for the aging population.
