Emily Rogers

Biomechatronics
  • Research Assistant

Emily is an MS student in the Department Mechanical Engineering at MIT. She graduated from Harvard in 2015 with a BS in biomedical engineering. As an undergraduate, she was a member of the Harvard Biodesign Lab, working on the design of lower extremity exoskeletons and soft robotics for rehab applications. Before coming to MIT she spent several years as a mechatronics engineer at Ekso Bionics, focusing on the mechanical design and human machine interface of exoskeletons for rehabilitation, human augmentation, and load carriage. In the Biomechatronics group, she is currently working on the mechanical design of novel robotic prostheses for users with lower extremity amputation.
