Research Interests

My general objective is to enhance motor performance and health. More specifically, I seek to uncover the bases of motor learning and performance, as well as how to capitalize on these bases in order to enhance learning and performance. Additionally, I strive to understand why people choose and, more often, don't choose to engage in physical activity. I currently employ psychophysiological (e.g., electroencephalography) and behavioral (e.g., accelerometry) techniques to address my research aims.
