Dr. Krishnan has been promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure on the Instructional Track effective September 1, 2020 (,%20Chandramouli.pdf). Dr. Krishnan joined the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan as a part of Robotics Cluster hire in 2012. He founded the Neuromuscular and Rehabilitation Robotics Laboratory (NeuRRo Lab), which focuses on developing and testing low-cost technologies for the assessment and treatment of neurological and orthopaedic conditions. Dr. Krishnan's research examines the alterations in muscle strength, neuromuscular function, plasticity, and movement control after an injury to the neuro-musculoskeletal system and connects how these insights can be applied to rehabilitation using robotics, motor learning, exercise interventions, and virtual reality. His expertise includes biomechanics, motor control, human locomotion, clinical research, virtual/augmented reality, robotics, and low-cost technologies for rehabilitation. He has over 20 years of clinical and research experience in Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, has published more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and has presented at over 100 national and international meetings. He is an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering. He is also an Associate Editor for the Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience and a Section Editor for the Measurement in Physical Education and Exercise Science. He is an ad hoc reviewer for more than 40 international journals spanning across the field of engineering, biomechanics, and rehabilitation, and a regular reviewer for the National Institutes of Health and various international grant panels. Dr. Krishnan’s research program is funded through intramural and extramural grants, including support from the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation. Dr. Krishnan attributes his success to his students, collaborators, mentors, support staff, department leaders, and his family members. Many congratulations to Dr. Krishnan and wishing him many more successes in the future!!
