Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

My current research themes are in the measurement of physical activity in older adults and people with neurodegenerative disorders in particular Parkinson’s disease (PD) in a home based setting and the assessing physiological effects of emerging new technologies (exergaming/fitness Apps/wearable technology). I have an interest in virtual reality enviornments and the application in terms of retraining gait and posture.
