Brooklyn Crabtree

Graduate Student

I'm a PhD student in the CoDex lab through the ILS program. I am interested in the biomechanics, cognition, and neurophysiology behind complex motor skills. I am specifically interested in applying this research in patient populations with decreased dexterity to improve rehabilitation. In my free time, I enjoy crocheting, playing piano, reading, going for walks, and spending time with friends and family.

Pranav Iyer

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a sophomore majoring in Biology with a minor in Spanish. Currently, I am working in the Cognition and Dexterity lab to explore how finger individuation plays a role in motor skill and rehabilitation. My research interests are sports biomechanics, cognition & dexterity, and exercise physiology as they pertain to athletes or recovering stroke patients.

Reva Bagi

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a rising sophomore at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, majoring in biochemistry and spanish on the pre-med track. Through the NSURE REU, I was given the opportunity to work at the CoDex Lab, where I am researching finger individuation of children with Cerebral Palsy and creativity's role in familiar vs. novel motor skills. I plan to apply all I learn and experience towards the goal of working as a pediatric neurologist.

Kasra Ghaffari

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am majoring in Computer Systems Engineering. I like to code and play video games in my free time. At the CoDex lab, I work on hand-pose analysis project.

Graham Wolff

Undergraduate Research Assistant

I’m a rising senior majoring in biology with premed intent. I am studying how individuation of the fingers is related to grasping movements.
