Academic Background

Research Interests

  • I’ve been applying Biomechanics to examine the gait patterns of young and older individuals under different locomotion conditions. Through this knowledge, I hope to enhance our understanding about the risk factors, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries.
