Key Research Areas
Jasmine has a background in exercise science and gained a PhD in applied physiology/biomechanics from the University of New South Wales in 2008. In addition to conducting mechanistic studies of gait and balance, Jasmine has also been coordinating several prospective falls risk cohort studies of older adults and a large NHMRC-funded randomised controlled trial of multifaceted interventions to improve dizziness symptoms in older adults.
Her research interests are threefold:
to investigate sensory, cognitive and neuromuscular factors contributing to postural stability, stepping and gait in aging and clinical populations (neurodevelopmental disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy…);
to understand risk factors for falls in older people and clinical groups
to determine the effects of exercise interventions on falls and other health outcomes in ageing and clinical groups.
