Art Kuo is Professor of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan. His research interests are in human walking, balance and other movements, using engineering principles to bridge between mechanics and biology. He directs the Human Biomechanics and Control Laboratory, which pursues research topics such as design of prosthetic limbs, neural control of muscles, sensorimotor integration for balance, energetics of walking, mobility of older and impaired individuals, and robot locomotion. He attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (B.S. Electrical Engineering), and then Stanford University (Ph.D. Mechanical Engineering. At the University of Michigan, he teaches courses in dynamics and systems & control.
