Principle Investigator


jessica selinger

Dr. Jessica C. Selinger received her BSc in Life Sciences in 2007 and MSc in Biomechanics in 2009 from Queen’s University. She then completed her PhD in the Department of Biomedical Physiology & Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University in 2015. From 2016 to 2017 Dr. Selinger was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Stanford University Mobilize Center in Bioengineering before establishing her lab in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University in 2017. She is a member of the Queen’s Ingenuity Labs and Centre for Neuroscience Studies.

Her research interests are focused on understanding the fundamental principles that underlie the neuromechanics of legged locomotion, as well as the application of these principles to technology that can improve human mobility and overall health.

Graduate Students


Megan mcallister

Megan received her BSc with a specialization in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa in 2015. She then completed her MSc in Biomechanics in 2018 from Queen’s University, after which she joined the Neuromechanics Lab to pursue her PhD.

Megan’s research interests include gait analysis, rehabilitation assistive robotics, and locomotor learning. She is particularly focused on understanding the human side of the equation in human-machine interaction. Megan is also a practicing registered Kinesiologist, who loves to play hockey in her spare time.


Spencer mcgregor

Spencer received his BSc in Kinesiology from the University of Prince Edward Island in 2018, after which he joined the Neuromechanics Lab to pursue his MSc.

Spencer’s interests include movement analysis, powered exoskeletons, wearable activity monitors, and running biomechanics. Spencer is also part of the Queen's University Fencing Club, where he holds the role of Men's Epee Captain.
