    I am a PhD Candidate in the Neuroscience Program here at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I am passionate about understanding the neural correlates of human movement.  In particular, I am interested in how we integrate sensory information for the purposes of motor control.  My goal is to utilize these principles for rehabilitation device design and performance enhancement.
