My research focuses on understanding how the mechanics of walking determines its energetic cost. I aim to outline how the different mechanical tasks of walking affect the overall energetic cost of walking, and how this changes across illness, injury and disability. 

I am also interested in medical education and how best to convey new information in an engaging and interactive manner to learners both in and outside rehabilitation medicine. My interest focuses on the role of instruction style and substance itself on how well information is conveyed and remembered
