His research focuses on the coordination, control and skill of normal and abnormal human movement across the lifespan; mental retardation and motor skills; and, drug and exercise influences on movement control. He is well known for his contributions on the movement speed-accuracy relation, the structure of movement variability, and information for the learning of new movement forms.
