Research Interests:
My research focuses on the pathophysiology and treatment of motor disturbances in Parkinson’s disease, particularly freezing-of-gait. My current projects are focused on centrally generated limb and respiratory movements in PD and their relationship to motor blocks. I collaborate with a team of physicians working to develop non-invasive and non-pharmacological treatment approaches to treat PD.
