Dr. LaVonda Brown

I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Louisiana State University.

This semester I am teaching ENGR 3100 - Introduction to Robotics (Fall 2017). Last semester I taught EE 7200 - Healthcare Robotics and Instrumentation (Spring 2017).

I am eagerly looking for PhD students to assist with research. Click the link below to apply!



In short, I thrive from positively impacting people's lives. I have done so by developing a robotic playmate to increase the efficacy of rehabilitation protocols for individuals with motor-skill disorders. The playmate is able to provide individuals with real-time corrective feedback during therapy sessions that improve both performance and engagement levels. Most recently, I have been exploring creative methods to diagnose early-onset Alzheimer's by monitoring eye gaze patterns via low-cost and easily accessible platforms.

I am excited to continue this work here in the Brown Lab.
