Jonas Rubenson's research aim is to identify the fundamental principles underlying muscle function during locomotion- in particular in vivo function during movement and the relationship between muscle mechanics and locomotor energetics.

Fundamental principles underlying joint and muscle function during locomotion. We integrate experimental and modeling approaches to study gait and skeletal muscle function during locomotion in both health and disease/impairment. In particular, the relationship between joint and muscle mechanics and metabolic energetics and mechanisms underlying locomotor adaptation and optimization.
