My research interests lie in the field of rehabilitation, especially
following neuromuscular injury that affects the hand. Currently,
my studies have three main thrusts. The first entails a detailed
analysis of the underlying mechanisms of impairment of the
hand. This necessitates a second research area to describe
how the hand functions when unimpaired. The final area uses
the knowledge gained in the other two areas to develop devices
and techniques to assist treatment or function.
