Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise: 
Force coordination through object manipulation | Neuromuscular quickness | Effects of exercise on the cognitive and motor functions in clinical populations

My research interests include the assessment of hand function and neuromuscular quickness through object manipulation in healthy and neurological populations. I am developing a non-invasive measurement technique that quantifies both neuromuscular quickness and force coordination simultaneously. I also am interested in the effects of high speed, low resistance exercise on different aspects of cognitive and motor functions in neurological populations including people with schizophrenia and multiple sclerosis.
