Our research is currently focused on:

  1. Neuromechanics of hand and multi-digit actions as well as their applications to medicine, rehabilitation, and ergonomics.
  2. CNS control mechanisms for motor redundancy, developments of motor functions in typically developing children as well as children with developmental coordination disorder, and developmental changes and intervention & adaptation of motor functions in elderly persons and the persons with neurological/genetic disorders or stroke.
  3. Locomotion in persons with lower extremity amputations.
  4. Gait (walking, running, sprinting) and related tasks (e.g. side-cutting) with long term objectives of: a) developing theories that explain and accurately predict the mechanics and energetics of human locomotion, and b) integrating principles from engineering, physiology, and neuroscience for early identification and prevention of locomotor impairments.
