Research and Professional Interests

  • Health disparities; factors influencing choice of emergency services by patients with primary care providers; role of federally qualified health centers in our healthcare system.
  • Development of coordinated behaviors; behavioral and kinematic techniques as well as computer-assisted methods for data analysis to study how complex motor behaviors are assembled during development, and to determine how sensory information is used to produce adaptive motor behaviors.
  • Development and implementation of programs for prehealth students, including Medical Scholars Program, clinical internships, clinical research course.
