Calvin Kuo will be an assistant professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering starting July 1, 2020. He obtained his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science from the California Institute of Technology, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. He was then a Killam Postdoctoral Scholar working with Jean-S├ębastien Blouin in Kinesiology and Dinesh Pai in Computer Science at UBC. Calvin is broadly interested in sensing human motion and understanding how humans make sense of their own motion through a combination of wearable technologies and stochastic modeling approaches.
