Expert en contrôle locomoteur et son adaptation à l’environnement chez des populations saines et ayant des troubles de mobilité. Intéressé au développement des outils d’évaluation et d’intervention clinique pour la mobilité. Les techniques utilisées en laboratoire sont l’analyse de mouvement, l’électrophysiologie et la réalité virtuelle.
