The Department of Biomedical Engineering welcomes Xeufeng Bao, visiting assistant professor.
Bao’s research interests include: human motor control, rehabilitation robotics, neuromusculoskeletal dynamics, and exoskeletons.
Most recently, Bao completed his post-doc research at Case Western Reserve University’s School of Medicine, at the Advanced Platform Technology Center, a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs rehabilitation research center. The center addresses clinical needs of disabled veterans by applying engineering and basic science principles to the design of new rehabilitation interventions.
Bao holds a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh, where he conducted research in the Neuromuscular Control and Robotics Laboratory; a master’s degree from the University of Edinburgh (UK); and a bachelor’s degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University (China).
“I learned that UWM was a prominent university when I attended Pitt, because many Pitt graduates went on to work at UWM,” Bao says. “When I visited Milwaukee to attend a conference, I discovered a beautiful city, one that left a deep impression on me.”
An avid basketball fan, Bao says that a bonus is living in a city that hosts an NBA team.
