Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on improving mobility and reducing fall-related injuries in people with neurological disorders and older adults. I investigate neurophysiological and biomechanical mechanisms to understand how a person walks and maintains balance. To translate basic research results into clinical application, I examine the effectiveness of novel interventions to improve walking function in various clinical populations. I also validate innovative technologies that help measure movement efficiently yet accurately.
