Adam Goodworth

Teaching Focus

Associate Professor Adam Goodworth has expertise in motor control, biomechanics, and balance control as they pertain to rehabilitation sciences. His background in biomedical engineering and neuroscience contributes to a multi-disciplinary perspective in the class and laboratory settings. The courses he primarily teaches include Motor Control, Kinesiology Lab, and Scientific Inquiry series (research-based courses). Goodworth also regularly mentors engineering students in research and senior capstone projects.

Professional Interests

Goodworth’s research applies engineering methods to investigate human movement and balance control. He has described neural control of healthy, developing, and abnormal balance using feedback control models of sensorimotor integration. He investigates balance in various populations, including infants, children with cerebral palsy, and adults with neurological disorders. Goodworth has postdoctoral training in the area of pathological gait and a Certificate in Prosthetics. He collaborates across clinical and engineering disciplines.
