Characteristics of a person’s movement, sensing, and cognition directly relate to underlying neuro-physiological processes. Therefore, changes in these processes tend to be strong indicators of many health conditions and performance levels. Our work investigates characteristics of movement, sensing and cognition to understand health and performance.

We are taking an inter- and multi- disciplinary approach with Engineering, Psychology, Mathematics and Epidemiology to measure specific characteristics of movement (ie catching, swinging or walking), sensing (ie visual gaze and proprioception) and cognition (ie perception-action coupling) to understand health and performance problems. From this work we can start to develop diagnostic tools for health and performance measures for movement and sports.
