- The long-term goal of my research is to extend the health span of patient populations through interventions to reduce the incidence of falls, lessen the severity of fall injury, and enable physical activity.
- My studies often employ biomechanical analyses of walking and balance, with an emphasis on balance reactions to large perturbations.
- My research is applicable to many populations, including older adults, individuals with chronic stroke, and individuals with cerebral palsy.
