Primary research interests:I am interested in mechanisms of reduced mobility by older adults and individuals with neurological disorders particularly as it relates to dynamic instability and reduced cardio-respiratory fitness. I am also interested in the interaction of these two factors with the very slow walking speed that is observed in these clinical populations.The long range goal of this work is to design and test clinical interventions that improve functional mobility in patient populations.
