Jeremy Hall, B.Sc. (M.Sc. Student)

 

Jeremy graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alberta in 2014, and is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Albert Vette and Dr. Jacqueline Hebert. In the time between completing his undergraduate degree, and beginning graduate studies, Jeremy was employed as a manufacturing engineer with John Deere where he focused on the remanufacture of hydraulic pumps and motors. In his youth, repeated knee injuries led Jeremy to spend a number of years in a wheelchair, and wear knee-ankle-foot orthotics on both legs. His personal experience dealing with a loss of mobility, in combination with his education in mechanical engineering, led to his interest in the study of lower-limb biomechanics and rehabilitation technology. Currently, he is assisting Dr. Juan Forero develop an assessment tool for balance and performance using the Computer-Assisted Rehabilitation Environment at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. Outside of academics, Jeremy enjoys volunteering and staying active. He is  a current member of the Canadian Hemophilia Society Alberta Chapter Board of Directors, as well as the Alberta provincial sledge hockey team.
