Kristin Schmidt

Graduate Fellow

University of Delaware

Mechanical Engineering

I am a PhD candidate in the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Delaware. My research focuses on identifying the brain regions associated with learning to move in different force field environments, which she studies using a combination of MRI-compatible robotics and computational modeling. In addition to research, I am the lead mentor for my department’s EmPOWER peer mentoring organization. In this role, I provide guidance to first-year students starting graduate school.
