Human Performance and Neuro-Engineering Laboratory
...from brain to muscle
Dr. Patrick J. Baker the Director of US Combat Capabilities Development Command, Army Research Laboratory visit HPNE Lab
Dr. Patrick J. Baker the Director of US Combat Capabilities Development Command, Army Research Laboratory and Dr. Stephen B. Bayne, Interim Dean of the TTU Edward Whiteacre Jr. College of Engineering visited the Human Performance and Neuroengineering Laboratory of the Department of Industrial, Manufacturing, & Systems Engineering at Texas Tech University on September 27, 2022. IMSE Assistant Professor Dr. Suman Chowdhury and his student team demonstrated their ongoing research on injury biomechanics, traumatic brain injury, virtual reality applications in sensorimotor training, and helmet and exoskeleton designs to augment human performance in various operational environments.

Dr. Sherry Thaxton from NASA visit HPNE Lab
It was a great pleasure to brief our ongoing research works to Dr. Sherry Thaxton from NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration. She did her Ph.D. in Biomechanics/Human Factors Engineering from the Department of Industrial, Manufacturing, & Systems Engineering - at Texas Tech University in 2009 under the supervision of Dr. James Smith. Today, We saw her nostalgic happiness when she was interacting with our biomechanics graduate students in the Human Performance and Neuroengineering Lab. Our students were also excited and didn't miss this opportunity to ask her about their future career opportunities at NASA. Read More

Dr. Laurel Kuxhaus, Program Director of Biomechanics and Mechanobiology for the National Science Foundation visit HPNE Lab
Suman Chowdhury, Ph. D. and his team recently welcomed Dr. Laurel Kuxhaus, Program Director of Biomechanics and Mechanobiology for the National Science Foundation, to their campus. Dr. Kuxhaus, who also serves as Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University, visited the lab and other facilities to learn more about their research efforts.
At the HPNE lab, Dr. Chowdhury and his students are focused on reducing brain and musculoskeletal injuries, and neuromuscular fatigue, and improving the overall effectiveness of the human body. Their mission is to study product designs, tools, and occupational tasks to achieve these goals.
We are incredibly proud of the outstanding work being done by Dr. Chowdhury and his students, and we're grateful to Dr. Kuxhaus for taking the time to visit and learn more about their efforts. Special thanks to Dr. Zhongkui Hong, Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering here at TTU for helping to host Dr. Kuxhaus. Read More
