Bio

Veronica J. Santos received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering with a music minor from the University of California at Berkeley in 1999, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering with a biometry minor from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY in 2004 and 2007, respectively.  From 2007 to 2008, she was a postdoctoral research associate at the Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California where she worked on a team to develop a novel biomimetic tactile sensor for prosthetic hands.  From 2000 to 2001, she was a Quality Engineer and Research and Development Engineer at Guidant Corporation in Santa Clara, CA, specializing in life-saving cardiovascular technology.

Research Interests:  human-machine systems, robotics, prosthetics, tactile sensors, hand biomechanics, neural control of movement, stochastic modeling, and clinical applications of biomechanical modeling.

Awards and Honors:  Selected as one of the ASU Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Top 5% Teaching Award recipients (2012, 2013), Selected as a Lindseth Lecturer by the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University (2012), National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development CAREER Award (2010), Selected attendee for participation in the National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium (2010), Young Investigator Poster Presentation Award from the International Society of Biomechanics (2005), Exceptional Teaching Assistant Award from the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University (2005), National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (2001)
