Jeremy D. Brown

John C. Malone Assistant Professor

Research Interests

Haptic feedback, upper-limb prosthetics, surgical robotics, rehabilitation robotics, human-machine interaction.

Dr. Brown’s research focuses on the interface between humans and robots with a specific focus on medical applications and haptic feedback. In particular, he seeks to develop novel haptic interfaces to upper-limb prosthetics and minimally-invasive surgical robotics. At Hopkins, he sees the opportunity to expand into additional fields including rehabilitation robotics. His research sits at the intersection of engineering, biomechatronics, medicine, and psychophysics and uses methods from human perception, motor control, neurophysiology, and biomechanics. He was honored to receive several awards including the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship, the best student paper award at the 2012 IEEE Haptics Symposium, and the Penn Postdoctoral Fellowship for Academic Diversity.

Dr. Brown, a graduate of the Atlanta University Center’s Dual Degree Engineering Program, has B.S. degrees in Applied Physics and Mechanical Engineering from Morehouse College and the University of Michigan, respectively. He then attained his M.S. and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan.

Upon completing his PhD in 2014, Dr. Brown has been a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is part of the Haptics Research Group in Penn’s General Robotics, Automation, Sensing, and Perception (GRASP) laboratory.
