Moiz Khan

Ph.D. Student

Moiz Khan is a PhD candidate at ROAR Lab. He received his M.S. degree in Ergonomics and Biomechanics from New York University and his B.S. degree in Applied Engineering from Rutgers University. Prior to joining the lab, Moiz worked as a Project Manager and consultant of ergonomics and biomechanical design.

Moiz works on cable-driven robotic systems for posture and gait training. During his work, Moiz helped develop a trunk posture training device for rehabilitation of people with postural instabilities. This device allows patients to train at their postural stability limits, allowing them to explore and increase their workspace boundaries. Moiz’s work focuses on CP, Stroke, and SCI patient populations.

His research interests include cable-driven robotic systems, integration of robotics and virtual reality, biomechanics, and motor learning.
