I am interested in the computational principles that underlie sensorimotor learning and memory in the human brain. I conduct theory-driven behavioural experiments to investigate how humans learn to control a motor plant that exhibits switching dynamics.
I also study the role of control points in the representations of object dynamics and the interaction between impedance control and motor adaptation. More generally, I am interested in leveraging insights and methods from machine learning and robotics in human sensorimotor control and learning.
A list of my publications can be found at Google Scholar.
