Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on the way sensory information (visual, vestibular and proprioceptive) and cognitive resources are used to control movement. My current work focuses on balance control by assesing sensory integration and cognitive resource allocation in this process in neurotypical, atypical and clinical populations including young and older adults, adults with autism, Parkinson's disease and major depression. The methods I use include posturography, motion capture (Qualisys and xsens), brain stimulation (TMS, tDCS) and neuroimaging (fNIRS).

Open to PhD applications in

1. Investigating sensory integration for balance control in young and older adults using fNIRS
2. The 15 minute city: Speed and gait characteristics in city walking
3. Balance control and sensory integration in autism
4. Walking in the city in people living with Parkinson's
