IMMERSED IN: Running—Apr. 21

Part two in a three part series highlighting student research projects.

DATE: Friday, April 21, 2023
TIME: 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. EST
LOCATION: Virtual on Zoom
SPEAKERS: MIT undergraduate Enya Ryu



Muscle activity measurements while runningMuscle lengths change as they pull on one another and these muscle length oscillations can be used to quantify coordination in the body. This talk will focus on the effects of listening to music while running on muscle length changes and muscle activation.


Enya Ryu is an undergraduate student at MIT studying mechanical engineering. Ryu's key interests lie in product design and manufacturing, specifically for meeting user needs and improving quality of life.  Ryu seeks ways to advance sports biomechanics by combining the knowledge of the human body with experiences in engineering and technology.

about immersed

IMMERSED is a monthly seminar in which we explore the possibilities enabled by immersive technology and interactive experiences. Technologies such as motion capture, virtual and augmented reality, photogrammetry, and related computational advances bestow the power to gather, process, and interact with data from multiple modalities, providing unique insights and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations.

IMMERSED examines how immersive technology is shaping innovations across the sciences and the arts through a mix of lectures, demonstrations, and tutorials. IMMERSED is sponsored by the MIT.nano Immersion Lab, which provides space, tools, and a platform to connect scientists, engineers, artists, performers, and others through creative projects that bridge multiple disciplines.
