Emily Klinkman, MS

Research Engineer & Lab Manager



Emily Klinkman graduated with a BS in Kinesiology (biomechanics) from Eastern Michigan University and an MS in Kinesiology (biomechanics) from Northern Michigan University. During their time at NMU, they completed a master's thesis examining coordination variability and injury in collegiate dancers, and took courses in the Mechanical Engineering and Physics departments to round out their education. After graduate school, they worked at the University of Michigan School of Kinesiology under Dr. Haylie Miller in the Motor and Visual Development Lab, where they studied visuomotor integration in neurodivergent populations. Emily's research interests include modeling/simulation of human locomotion, human-environment interaction and accessibility, validating wearable devices for rehabilitation, and biomimicry.
