Dr. Rajat Emanuel Singh Assistant Professor of Kinesiology


Ph.D., M.S., University of Arkansas at Little Rock
B.Tech., Punjab Technical University


Dr. Rajat Emanuel Singh has post-doctoral research experience from the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at North Carolina State University/University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He has also worked as a research intern at Shirley Ryan Ability Lab of Northwestern University in Chicago. His research focus is biomechanical movement—specifically, synergy analysis of movement disorders, with the goal of quantifying muscle coordination strategies when assistive technologies are being used. Dr. Singh completed his undergraduate degree in electronics and communication engineering at Punjab Technical University, India. His master’s degree and doctoral work were completed at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock. Dr. Singh’s published work has appeared, among other places, in the top international journals.
