My research focuses on robotics, wearable sensors, and computational neuroscience for movement rehabilitation focused on persons who have experienced a stroke. My group designs innovative rehabilitation technologies based on an understanding of neuromuscular control and plasticity mechanisms. Developing improved rehabilitation technology not only helps people with disabilities improve their movement ability, but also enhances scientific understanding of motor learning and use-dependent plasticity, which can, in turn, help us invent more effective, clinically useful technologies and therapies. We are also using such technologies, along with computational models of neuro-recovery, to help assess and enhance emerging neuro-repair therapies after stroke spinal cord injury.
