Joshua C. Kline, Ph.D.

Lead Research Engineer

Joshua C. Kline, Ph.D. is Lead Research Engineer at Delsys, Inc. He has nearly 10 years of experience in research and development at the Boston University NeuroMuscular Research Center and Delsys, Inc. At Boston University he obtained BS (2009), MS (2012) and PhD (2014) degrees in biomedical engineering under the direction of Dr. Carlo J De Luca, the Chief Scientist and President of Delsys, Inc. During his study he was trained in the disciplines of signal processing, neuromuscular physiology and motor control. At Delsys Dr. Kline collaborates with a team of engineers and scientists to develop sensor systems and signal processing algorithms to interface with the neuromuscular system.
