We’re reaching the end of this focus series on IEEE/RSJ IROS 2020 (International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems) original series Real Roboticist. This week you’ll meet Michelle Johnson, Associate Professor of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Pennsylvania.

Michelle is also the Director of the Rehabilitation Robotics Lab at the University of Pennsylvania, whose aim is to use rehabilitation robotics and neuroscience to investigate brain plasticity and motor function after non-traumatic brain injuries, for example in stroke survivors or persons diagnosed with cerebral palsy. If you’d like to know more about her professional journey, her work with affordable robots for low/middle income countries and her next frontier in robotics, among many more things, check out her video below!
