Dr. Brown’s research has focused on rapid prototyping, from conceptualization, specification, and design, of mechanical and electromechanical systems, specifically robotic systems. Dr. Brown has 5 years of experience working with biologically-inspired/biomimetic robotics and novel sensing systems. In addition, he is experienced in analyzing motion capture data and modeling robotic motions.

Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Brown was a graduate researcher in the Scansorial and Terrestrial Robotics and Integrated Design (STRIDe) Lab at Florida State University. His research projects focused on the analysis and modeling of animal and robotic locomotion on level, vertical, and inclined surfaces. This included dynamic simulations as well as robot design, fabrication, and experimental testing.
