Lena Ting

McCamish Foundation Distinguished Chair in Biomedical Engineering, Emory University and Georgia Tech
Professor, Rehabilitation Medicine, Division of Physical Therapy, Emory University
Co-Director, GaTech and Emory Neural Engineering Centers

Lena Ting directs the Neuromechanical Laboratory at Emory University, focusing on complex, whole body movements such as walking and balance in healthy and neurologically impaired individuals, as well as skilled movements involved in dance and sport. Her work is highly interdisciplinary, drawing from neuroscience, biomechanics, rehabilitation, computation, robotics, and physiology. Her lab has developed several computational methods to characterize and understand individual differences in movement and movement control, and how these change in neurological disorders, as well as with rehabilitation and training.
