Tyler Clites

Biomechatronics
  • Postdoctoral Associate

Tyler is a PhD student in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program. He graduated from Harvard in 2014 with a BS in biomedical and mechanical engineering. As an undergraduate, he worked with the Biomechatronics group to develop a process whereby MRI data are used to create comfortable prosthetic sockets. For his undergraduate thesis, Tyler built a neurally controlled active exoskeleton for a rabbit. He is currently working on new ways to enable bi-directional communication with the peripheral nervous system, giving way to prostheses that more closely replicate the biological control experience.
