Research Interests
  • Fall risk prediction and assessments
  • Movement Disorders (e.g., Parkinson’s disease, Stroke, Ataxia)
  • Gait and Posture, Locomotion and Postural Control, and Nonlinear Dynamics
  • Wireless wearable sensors for continuous, non-invasive gait monitoring to accurately detect and study fall events and predict future falls in the elderly population
  • Interventions (nutrition/exercise) to reduce falls in older adults
  • Occupational fall prevention training
