Research Interests

My research examines sensory systems contributions to human movement. My recent research has focused on adapting electrical vestibular stimuli to investigate the role vestibular cues play in movement control as well as investigation of visual cues influence on our perception of vertical. Future research will examine how visual and vestibular cues contribute to movement generation and stability.
