MEAM Ph.D. Thesis Defense: “Social Robot Augmented Telepresence for Remote Assessment and Rehabilitation of Patients with Upper Extremity Impairment”

April 29 at 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

With the shortage of rehabilitation clinicians in rural areas and elsewhere, remote rehabilitation (telerehab) fills an important gap in access to rehabilitation. We have developed a first of its kind social robot augmented telepresence (SRAT) system — Flo — which consists of a humanoid robot mounted onto a mobile telepresence base, with the goal of improving the quality of telerehab. The humanoid has arms, a torso, and a face to play games with and guide patients under the supervision of…

This hybrid seminar is co-hosted by the Departments of Bioengineering and Biology. Check email for the zoom link or contact ksas@seas.upenn.edu. The study of biology at the single-cell level has relied on the development of precision measurement tools. Our research is focused on developing new technology for multimodal, precision measurement of single cells to move beyond cataloging cell types and push towards gaining a mechanistic understanding of the relationship between the molecules that define and maintain cell state. We build…

The nitrogen-vacancy (NV) center in diamond has been integral to the advancement of quantum technologies. It has enabled key demonstrations in quantum networks and distributed quantum computing, as well as impressive proof-of-concept devices in nanoscale, sub-cellular imaging and sensing. The NV center - a point defect in diamond with an optically addressable electron spin - boasts several advantages such as long coherence times and quantum control in ambient conditions. At the same time, the NV center still faces significant engineering…
