From brewing the perfect cup of coffee to handling routine lane changes, humans are remarkably skilled at mastering a limitless repertoire of movements. My long-term research goal is to understand how humans achieve this exquisite feat of learning by combining computational modeling, psychophysics, and neuropsychology. I expect these findings to apply broadly to optimize clinical rehabilitation, improve human performance, and inspire the next generation of brain-computer interfaces.
