Home About Me Research Publications Side Projects Interests

I am a Post Doctoral Associate at the New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), with a strong interest in motor control and multisensory integration. Specifically, my work investigates the tight link between auditory, visual and haptic (proprioceptive and tactile) sensory information and motor control through multiple techniques.
