Research Interests:

  • Neuroscience and neurological disorders
  • Balance, gait, exercise
  • Aging
  • Understanding how the brain and other parts of the central nervous system control movements of the body
  • Using advanced measurements systems to improve recovery time after a neurological injury (such as a stroke) and minimize age-related effects on movement control (such as reducing the risk of falling). 
  • Electroencephalography and electromyography
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation, magnetic resonance imaging, peripheral nerve stimulation
  • Galvanic skin measurement
  • Eye-tracker, motion analysis, and kinetic measurement
