Matt is a kinesiologist and a physical therapist. His MSc focused on the impact of muscle fatigue and sensory supplementation on proprioception and postural control. During his PhD, he investigated the central mechanisms underlying age-related decline in proprioception on the Techniques for Biomedical Engineering and Complexity Management – Informatics, Mathematics and Applications Grenoble (TIMC – IMAG) team that is embedded in the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Universite Grenoble – Alpes. As a postdoc at KU Leuven (Belgium) and UBC, he explores the brain predictors of postural instability/falls, action selection, and bimanual coordination.
