Aviroop Dutt-Mazumder, Ph.D.

Dr. Dutt-Mazumder is a Post-doctoral ARRT fellow in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan.  He received his Ph.D. in Kinesiology, at Penn State University, and did his postgraduate work at University of Otago, New Zealand.  Alumni of Jadavpur University in India, he majored in Physics.  His Ph.D. dissertation, supervised by Dr. Karl Newell and Dr. John Challis, involved examining the biomechanical factors contributing to postural stability under both static and dynamic environments.  His career focus is on translational research, particularly on reflex conditioning, utilizing muscle architecture among spinal cord injury, and after stroke populations.  While working with Dr. Krishnan (ARRT mentor), he hopes to develop rehabilitation interventions to expedite recovery following neuromuscular impairments. He is also actively involved in Brain Computer Interface technology interventions within the community with Dr. Huggins (co-mentor) who is the director of University of Michigan Direct Brain Interface Laboratory.
