Dr. Aucie addresses issues involving the biomechanics of human injury, including motor vehicle collisions, premises liability events, and interactions involving consumer products. He has also been involved in the evaluation of various issues related to Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) product recalls and investigations. He has extensive experience using motion capture systems, force-plates, electromyography (EMG), inertial motion units (IMUs), exoskeletons, and mobile respirometry systems.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Aucie was a Graduate Assistant at the University of Pittsburgh Department of Bioengineering, working in the Sensorimotor learning laboratory. During his time in this laboratory, Dr. Aucie employed unique experimental methods by using force-plate data to assess the transfer of walking movement from a treadmill to overground. Furthermore, he implemented a novel approach to count steps during overground walking in real time with a motion capture system, allowing for better control for uniform data collection. Dr. Aucie has led more than 200 sessions of human testing on young and older healthy adults as well as post-stroke patients.
