- Research Description
I study human movement. In particular, I focus on strategies used to execute safe movement during adapted locomotor tasks and the role of vision in these tasks. On top of this, my research explores the impact of brain function on locomotor control and how ageing may influence cognitive resources, sensory input, and movement.
- Research Summary
To date, my research program has focused on strategies used to execute safe movement during adapted locomotor tasks (steering, obstacle circumvention, obstacle stepping) and the role of vision in these tasks. I am also interested in exploring the impact of cognitive or brain function on locomotor control. Given the commonness of dual tasking in our daily living, I hope to map patterns of cognitive-locomotor interference for multiple adapted locomotor (e.g. obstacle circumvention) and cognitive activities (e.g. visuo-spatial cognitive tasks) and ascertain optimal training strategies for dual-task performance.
