Jessy Parokaran Varghese is a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, working with Bill McIlroy, PhD. Dr. Varghese has a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering and PhD in Kinesiology (Neuroscience). Her research focuses on understanding the role of the cerebral cortex in human bipedal balance control. In her postdoctoral research, she works with the gait and balance platform team investigating how static balance control is affected by neurodegenerative diseases and whether measures of static posturography can be used as a potential biomarker to predict the disease severity and progression.
