Dr Andrew Jackson
A teaching and research fellow in the School of Mechanical Engineering. He gained his PhD at the University of Leeds in 2003 in the field of vehicle dynamics and control. The work, sponsored by QinetiQ, focused on the simulation and control of a six-wheel-drive hybrid electric off-road vehicle. As a research fellow, his focus shifted from vehicle dynamics to robotics, working as part of a multi-disciplinary team including engineers, clinicians, physiotherapists and people with stroke to develop the iPAM robotic exercise system. He is currently overseeing a randomised control trial of the system within two National Health Service trusts where it is being used by physiotherapists to treat acute stroke patients. His current research interests remain within rehabilitation robotics, primarily focused on the upper-limb. He is also a Certified LabVIEW Developer.
