JEREMY D. BROWN, joined the Whiting School of Engineering as a John C. Malone Assistant Professor in professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and he is a core faculty member of the Malone Center for Engineering in Healthcare.

Dr. Brown’s research focuses on the interface between humans and robots, with a specific interest in medical applications and haptic feedback. Brown seeks to develop novel haptic interfaces to use with upper-limb prosthetics and with minimally-invasive surgical robotics. Research Brown is pursing in collaboration with colleagues at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, includes developing interfaces to provide haptic feedback to surgeons could be used to as a training platform for robotic surgery.

Dr. Brown graduated from Atlanta University Center’s Dual Degree Engineering Program, earning BS degrees in Applied Physics and Mechanical Engineering from Morehouse College and the University of Michigan. Brown obtained his MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan. After completing his PhD, he joined the Haptics Research Group at the University of Pennsylvania as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow.
