Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Sciences

Focus of Work

Bio

My research focuses on understanding the principles governing neuromechanical control of human locomotion and applying this knowledge to promote walking recovery following neurological injury. I employ an interdisciplinary experimental approach using robotic tools to examine whole-body human movement from a biomechanics and motor control perspective. I also do research on bone health following spinal cord injury with an emphasis on the role of mechanical loading on the prevention and treatment o...[Read full text]My research focuses on understanding the principles governing neuromechanical control of human locomotion and applying this knowledge to promote walking recovery following neurological injury.
