Zoë is currently researching proprioception (the ability to sense limb position and movement) and muscular performance in the lower limbs.

Zoë is involved in a clinical trial, run by Prof. Stephen Lord’s group, which investigates proprioception in the ankle and performance of the calf muscle in people who have Multiple Sclerosis. Participants in this trial complete a 6 month exercise intervention aimed at improving mobility and reducing falls.  Zoë’s research investigates whether ankle sensation and strength, fatigue and voluntary activation of the calf muscles are improved following this exercise.

Zoë also studies proprioception in the ankle and calf muscle performance in healthy individuals and researches how proprioception and sensation in the ankle change as we age.
