Jeff Hausdorff, PhD, and the research team that he leads aim to better understand, evaluate, and treat gait and balance changes associated with aging and disease. Dr. Hausdorff studies gait, balance, motor control, and brain function, with a special focus on gait variability, freezing of gait, falls in older adults and people with Parkinson's disease, and wearable devices. His cutting-edge research in this area has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and by private agencies and has been widely recognized. In 2013, he received the Gerontology Society of America's Excellence in Rehabilitation of Aging Persons Award, and in 2023, he was awarded the Aufzien Foundation Prize for established researcher in Parkinson’s disease.  His publications have been cited more than 83,000 times, placing him among the more influential scientists.
