Research and Scholarship

Research and Scholarship Interests

  • My research focus is understanding how the preparation and coordination of whole-body movements contribute to the performance of daily tasks, such as reaching and getting up from a chair. I am interested in understanding and addressing the neural and biomechanical factors that influence movement performance in order to decrease reliance on assistive devices, reduce limitations due to neurological and musculoskeletal impairments, and improve movement quality.
