Anu is developing digital biomechanical arm models that will better model the kinematics of the human arm, which will improve the accuracy of simulated movements and help us create simulation-based design to, for example, evaluate the risk of injury under certain conditions. She is working to identify a suitable level of detail for modeling the neuro-musculo-skeletal system. This will show how errors in modeling musculoskeletal systems limit our ability to use f-MRI experiments to confirm control theory hypotheses.
