Research

My research is focused on understanding how sensory information is used to control movement, particularly standing balance. I’m interested in how balance-relevant muscle spindle, Golgi tendon organ, cutaneous and vestibular information is acquired and utilized to control balance, as well as how these processes are affected by context and/or disease. My postdoctoral work employs electrophysiological and biomechanical methods to explore how muscle spindles encode stretch information.
