My scientific interests focus on studying how the brain controls movements in individuals with and without neurological disorders. Specifically, I am interested in investigating neural mechanisms of motor control and learning, modulation in cortical circuits, and neuroplasticity, by employing biomechanical techniques, robotics, non-invasive brain stimulation, electrophysiology, and neuroimaging.
