My long-term research goals are to elucidate the best methods for locomotor rehabilitation after neurological injury based on principles of biomechanics, motor learning and control. I seek to understand how different types of error impact motor learning of walking balance in intact and disordered nervous systems. Related to this, I am interested in the role of proprioceptive sense in the recovery of balance and skilled walking function. I aim to use this knowledge to develop and optimize the use of physical guidance and rehabilitation robotics in restoring gait and balance in individuals with spinal cord injury and in older adults.
