Previous Research

Master's:

  • Approximated the feasible stability region (centre of mass position-velocity region) for a torque-driven model of frontal plane counterbalance postural strategies via predictive simulations.
  • Evaluated fidelity of simplified anthropometric model variants for estimation of whole-body centre of mass kinematics during balance recovery. 

Undergraduate:

  • Investigated the effect of repeated exposure to support-surface perturbations mimicking controlled slipping during walking on the kinematics of balance recovery.
