She has a B.Sc. in Physical Therapy, M.Sc. in Human Movement, Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies, and a post-doctoral training in Motor Control. Her long-term goals are to a) identify the mechanisms behind multi-muscle control and postural sway variability, b) investigate the effects of the natural aging process to the generation of multiple postural muscle synergies to control balance, and c) translate findings from clinical trials into practical applications to enhance human health.
