Research

Kamran Iqbal

My research interests are focused on investigation of human motor functions from a modeling and control theoretic perspective. Specifically, our research efforts aim to uncover the biomechanical principles and neurological mechanisms underlying the central nervous system control of posture and voluntary movement, and extend them to engineering use. The models employed in our studies entail biomechanical representation of the musculoskeletal and sensory systems, complemented with physiologically motivated controller models. They are employed to examine motor control of synergistic movements and test paradigms of movement organization, proprioception, postural stability, fall prevention, and movement learning and adaptation. In a broader perspective my research interests include control and dynamic systems, robotics, computational intelligence, biomedical signal processing, and industrial process control. More information on my research activities is available on my website.
