Tristan completed his PhD in Kinesiology at the University of Toronto in 2019, where he examined sensory processing during upper-limb reaching. His main research interests include visuomotor control, therapeutic musical instrument playing, and rehabilitation. Tristan’s postdoctoral work in the MaHRC focuses on the use of percussive training for upper-limb rehabilitation following stroke and optimization of motor learning in performance.
