Eni Halilaj, PhD

Dr. Eni Halilaj is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, with courtesy appointments in Biomedical Engineering and the Robotics Institute, at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). She also holds an adjunct appointment in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Dr. Halilaj currently directs the CMU Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Lab, which combines medical imaging, motion capture in laboratory settings and natural environments, computational modeling, and machine learning to study the implication of movement mechanics in orthopaedic pathologies, such as osteoarthritis. Her ultimate goal is to integrate insights from experimental and computational work in the development of precision rehabilitation technologies aimed at restoring and preserving pain-free mobility.

Dr. Halilaj was previously a postdoctoral fellow at the National Center of Excellence for Mobility Big Data Integration to Insight at Stanford University. She completed her undergraduate and graduate studies at Brown University.
