In addition, Dr. Sethi earned a PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences, concentrating his research on motor control, from the University of Florida.

Dr. Sethi’s research interests include understanding the neurophysiological and biomechanical mechanisms contributing to upper extremity weakness in adults post-stroke. He also specializes in studying the inherent complexity of human movement utilizing the tools of non-linear dynamics. Dr. Sethi has published in rehabilitation and biomechanics peer reviewed journals.  His current research is funded through pilot grants from the University of Pittsburgh.
