Current Research Interests:
  1. Motor Control;
    • Coordination of multi-joint movements in 3-D space.
    • Motor-unit recruitment.
    • Control algorithms for kinematically redundant manipulators.
    • Task-dependent muscle activation patterns.
    • Posture and heading.
  2. Computational Neuroscience;
    • Neural network models for neurobiology
    • Analysis of stability and convergence of dynamics of neural networks.
    • Models to explain synchronization of neuronal activity as measured in EEG and MEG
