Brody Kalwajtys, B.Sc. (Research Assistant)

Brody Kalwajtys graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from the University of Alberta in 2016. Before entering university, Brody travelled the high seas working as a professional dancer for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. Since returning home, he wanted to enter a field of study which combined his love of dance and movement with his passion for science! His degree led him to complete his final practicum with the BLINC lab, and through this, ignited his interest in biomedical sciences and the advancement of prosthetics. Currently, Brody is a Research Assistant on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Hand Proprioception and Touch Interfaces (HAPTIX) project, and is a part of the human movement biomechanics sub-team. Outside of the lab, Brody is an active Dance Teacher and Choreographer in the Edmonton area. In his free time, Brody enjoys painting and spending time with his cat, Copernicus!
