Dr. Masani's field of expertise spans human neurophysiology, motor control, biomechanics, and functional electrical stimulation. His research interests aim at enhancing our understanding of human movement, with a focus on movement variability from the view of neuro-mechanical interaction and sensory-motor integration.
