David Huberdeau joined BLAM Lab in June 2011 as a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering.
His current research interests are in experimental and computational motor control. Together with Adrian Haith, he’s been investigating questions related to movement preparation through a set of experiments and computational models. Ultimately, he hopes to develop a theory of motor skill acquisition and see it applied to rehabilitation. As a biomedical engineer, David has an interest in both the biological sciences and in engineering, and hopes to straddle the divide that typically exists between them.
As an undergraduate student – also here at Hopkins –, David was highly involved in research and engineering projects, leading to five authored or co-authored publications, a patent application, and over $14,000 in prize money from national student design competitions.

In his free time, David enjoys running and training for distance races, along with trying any activity that permits an opportunity to learn.
