BME PhD Student, Noah Rubin, Received 3rd Place at Research Symposium

Last week, BME student, Noah Rubin, represented the Joint BME Department at the 15th Annual NC State Graduate Student Research Symposium, where his poster won 3rd place among 34 abstracts in the Engineering category. Noah is advised by BME Distinguished Professor He Huang and Associate Professor Xiaogang Hu. Noah presented a poster titled “Validating Motor Unit Decomposition of Surface Electromyography During Dynamic Muscle Activation.” His research presents matching pursuit applied to decomposed Surface electromyography (sEMG) as a novel step to further validate sEMG decomposition on and quantify the extent to which recorded motor unit action potentials (MUAPs) transform during dynamic muscle activation. Such efforts may improve accuracy in myoelectric control of assistive devices and reliability of noninvasive neurophysiological investigation.

The Graduate Student Research Symposium, held each spring, includes poster presentations from more than 200 graduate students from NC State University. The event is sponsored by the Graduate School and the Graduate Student Association and is open to the public. Posters are judged by faculty, and students receive recognition for top posters. The goals are to showcase the outstanding quality and diversity of graduate-level research at NC State, in addition to providing students with the opportunity to practice and enhance their communication skills with those outside of their discipline. Congratulations to Noah Rubin!
