- 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 gait and fall recoveries.
- My research is applicable to many ambulatory patient populations, including older adults, individuals with lower-extremity amputations, and individuals with chronic stroke.
