I'm an exercise scientist with an interest in how the brain and spinal cord control, code and learn movement.

I'm a PhD candidate who studies how the brain and spinal cord control and learn movement. I'm especially interested in how humans can learn from others by observation, and how we can practice movements via imagination (i.e. without lifting a finger). I also have an interest in how movements are used in social contexts and how humans are able to share attention and interact cooperatively. When someone passes you a cup of coffee in the morning, how do you both coordinate to make sure the coffee stays in the cup?
