Research interests include movement physiology, development of a novel strategy of regulating locomotor function in individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) using non-invasive multisite spinal neuromodulation, and synergistic activation of locomotor-related systems through spinal neuromodulation to promote recovery of voluntary control of stepping movements in paralyzed subjects.
