My research work as a PhD candidate in Human Movement and Sports Sciences has been about the effect of ageing on postural and balance control mechanisms during gait transitions. Specifically, I investigated the age-related changes in motor control of the upper body during gait initiation and termination. Most recently, I have started a research project on the effect of low back pain on motor control during gait transitions. Relevant instruments for my investigations have been motion capture systems, force platforms and surface EMG devices.
