Michael Nawrot

Biomechatronics

Mike is a mechanical engineering PhD student in the Biomechatronics Lab, whose research focuses on exoskeletons for augmenting human locomotion. He received his SB and SM in mechanical engineering from MIT and worked for a small robotics startup developing novel actuators before returning to academia.

He has previously worked in electric vehicles, consumer electronics, medical devices, and robotics. After discovering his passion for athleticism, Mike decided to use his diverse background to augment human performance. His research focuses on combining models of neuromuscular dynamics with hardware intervention to reduce the metabolic cost of transport and address gait abnormalities.
