Jesse Charlton

Dr. Jesse Charlton is a postdoctoral fellow in both the School of Biomedical Engineering and the School of Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia. He obtained is MSc (2017) and PhD (2022) in Clinical Biomechanics (funded by CIHR) where he studied biomechanical aspects of knee osteoarthritis and the use of wearable sensor systems to monitor and modify gait in real-world settings.

As a recipient of the Health Research BC Research Trainee award, he will continue his research in locomotor biomechanics and wearable sensing, now focusing on how we adapt movement to clinically relevant contexts (e.g. pain). His research involves the design and implementation of a novel wearable motion sensing and stimulation system to couple experimental pain with movement biomechanics.

By combining his clinical research training with emerging technology, Jesse aims to bridge the gap between the laboratory and the real-world, conducting research that is relevant and impactful for the patient, clinician, and researcher alike.
