Dr. Yentes' research focuses on functional resiliency and reserve in older adults. Using objective measures of reserve, Dr. Yentes works to understand how resilience and reserve in middle-age can potentially predict non-normative aging in later life. Her training primarily focuses on gait and postural control mechanics as well as using dynamic systems (nonlinear mathematics) to quantify movement data.
