The neural control of swallowing and respiration, critical behaviors present from birth, undergo significant developmental changes. We study normal development, the impact of preterm birth and neurogenic conditions that compromise function.

My research focuses on computer haptics to design/develop novel immersive user interfaces utilizing touch sensing and feedback by combining virtual/augmented/mixed reality technologies, which can be used for rehabilitation related to the brain.
