Research title: Estimating physical workload using inertial measurement based techniques

Background: Sol's research interest is in the area of physical ergonomics. Her ongoing work involves validating use of inertial sensors for ergonomics posture and kinematics assessment. She is currently developing algorithms to analyze body postural angles and kinematics from inertial sensors in various work domain involving manual works such as pushing-pulling, lifting, and carrying. Her research aims at assessing ergonomic workload in field settings to objectively evaluate work conditions and assess injury risk.
