Research Summary

My research focuses on improving mobility during daily life in people with neurological dysfunction, particularly those with brain injuries. Using core concepts from biomechanics and motor control, my lab concentrates on functionally relevant balance that is typical during daily life. These common, yet complex tasks, such as maintaining balance while changing directions or walking and talking at the same time, require robust, flexible control. Our goal is to improve rehabilitation approaches.
