Research interests

PhD in medical sciences, physiotherapist by training. Publications in biomedical engineering and physics journals about the fundamental, neuromechanical concepts of prosthetic limb gait. Mathematical computer models were used to study the prosthetic limb gait data of transfemoral amputees. Currently contributing to the implementation of  Exercise = Medicine in routine clinical care.
