Research Interests:

Neuromechanics of moving and sensing, Neuromechanical modeling, Neural mechanisms of rehabilitation, Active sensing, Human-robot interactions

Computational and experimental methods for understanding neuromechanical interactions underlying movement and understanding the neural basis of human motor skill and deficit. Current projects include:

Musculoskeletal modeling of gait and balance in animals and humans, and deficits induced by lower limb amputation

Effects of novel rehabilitation technique on muscle coordination for gait and balance in Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury, and stroke

Sparse coding for motor systems

Modeling information coding of muscle spindle sensory organs

Active sensing and perception

Cooperative human-robot interactions for motor assistance and rehabilitation
