Short Bio
Dr. Deanna Kennedy is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health and Kinesiology. She received her PhD in Kinesiology (Motor Neuroscience) from Texas A&M University. Her research addresses theoretical questions related to motor synergies and bimanual coordination as well as more applied questions that have important implications for stroke rehabilitation and aging.
