Research

 

mfllogo2The Muscle Function + Locomotion Lab is dedicated to understanding the biomechanics and energetics of legged locomotion.  

We are interested in mechanisms of locomotor adaptation and optimization and are open to the possibilities that arise at the intersection of disciplines (e.g. in vivo muscle experiments, gait analyses, computational modelling). A   major research theme within our group is understanding the biomechanical determinants of locomotor energy cost. We primarily undertake basic research, both in humans and using a comparative approach. Our basic research informs clinical- and health-focused studies.
