My present position is Associate Professor of Neurology (Clinical) at Ohio State University. I recently took this position after 6 years at Washington University in St. Louis, and 15 years on the faculty at Columbia University. Within the Department of Neurology at OSU, I am co-director, with Ariane Park, of the Movement Disorders Division.
My clinical work consists of evaluating and treating patients with movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, tremor, and gait disorders. My research is focused on human motor control and how it is disrupted by movement disorders. I use wearable sensors and related techniques to understand what motor control principles are disrupted to cause movement abnormalities. This understanding is intended to guide the development of physical and technological interventions to reduce the impact of motor symptoms on quality of life.
