I’m a physical therapist, with a PhD degre in Human Mouvement Sciences. I did a 3-years post-doc training in Montreal, Quebec.
My field of interest are balance, gait and mobility in populations with neurological disorders (post-stroke individuals, for example).
A part of my expertise is about assing mobility in ecological settings, with inertial sensors (IMU). In addition, focal tendinous vibration is a tool that I use to modify human behaviour.
