Jordyn Koenig is a graduate student in the Physical Ergonomics and Biomechanics lab under the supervision of Dr. Gary Mirka. She previously received her Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering at Iowa State University. Her current research focuses on predictive modeling of spine biomechanics during lifting tasks. Jordyn’s interest in ergonomics developed after working two years at Mayo Clinic in the Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery. In this position, she conducted both physical and cognitive ergonomic research with health care providers.
