Her main research focus experience in objective motion analysis for lameness detection with techniques as high-speed cameras and inertial measure units. To implement objective measurements in the lameness exams she has looked into the effect of circular movement on movement symmetry in both sound and lame horses. In 2017 she passed the board examination and was accredited as a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation. Her main research focus is orthopedic pain and objective motion analysis in horses. She co-authored over 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles.
