Jeremy D. Brown, John C. Malone Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been selected as the winner of the 2023 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) Robotics and Automation Society’s Technical Committee for Haptics (TCH) Early Career Award. This biannual award recognizes outstanding contributions to the area of haptics by IEEE members who are in the earlier stages of their career.
Brown’s work explores human-robot interfacing, with a specific focus on haptic feedback for upper-limb prosthetics, minimally invasive surgical applications, and robotic rehabilitation. His work has appeared in IEEE Transactions on Haptics and he was previously awarded Best Student Paper at the 2012 IEEE Haptics Symposium. He will be presented with the TCH Early Career Award at the IEEE World Haptics 2023 conference at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands.
