Mike McGeehan, PhD is a post-doctoral scholar in the Ong Lab at the Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. He completed his PhD in 2020 under the mentorship of Dr. Mike Hahn in the University of Oregon Neuromechanics Laboratory. His PhD research focused on the development and use of computational models and simulations to optimize design parameters of a novel foot-ankle prosthesis.
Mike joined the Ong Lab in January of 2021 and is working toward developing wireless sensors with orthopedic applications. Specifically, he is developing a suite of sensors for monitoring the mechanical and physiological environment inside a prosthetic socket with the goal of improving residual limb health among individuals with lower limb amputation.
