Faculty Expert Profile

Jeremy Brown

  • John C. Malone Assistant Professor


  • Whiting School of Engineering

Jeremy D. Brown explores the interface between humans and robotics, with a focus on medical applications and haptic feedback. He is particularly interested in how the human perception of touch can apply to robotics.

He develops novel haptic interfaces for upper-limb prostheses, minimally invasive surgical robotics, and rehabilitation robots.

One of his recent studies showed people who received gentle electric currents on the back of their heads learned to maneuver a robotic surgery tool in virtual reality and then in a real setting much more easily than people who didn't receive those nudges.
