Our research focuses on the aea of motor control and coordination. We apply principles from complex and nonlinear dynamical systems to the study of posture and locomotion. We place particular emphasis on mechanisms of stability and adaptability in movement coordination. An important research focus is the role of variability in the control of movement.
