Research Overview

  • My research is interested in investigating neuromechanical factors that negatively impact mobility by older adults and those aging with neurological dysfunction such as individuals post stroke and those with Parkinson's Disease. My research involves both a mechanistic approach to understand factors that negatively impact mobility and then the development and testing of novel interventions that can positively impact mobility in these populations.
  • Teaching Overview

  • I teach Scientific Inquiry and Human Movement Analysis in the Department of Physical Therapy and I also teach topics related to the neuromechanics of locomotion in the Rehabilitation Science Program.
