Martin Lavallière is a postdoctoral Research Associate at the MIT AgeLab. Dr. Lavallière brings extensive knowledge in human motor control and learning and human movement analysis experience. He received his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in kinesiology from Université Laval (Québec, Canada). During his Ph.D., his works aimed at evaluating whether an in-simulator-based training program combined with driving specific feedbacks can improve on-road driving behaviors in older drivers. He also evaluated the impact of a similar training with people who suffered from traumatic brain injury. During his Ph.D., he also worked as a road safety consultant for CAA-Québec. He also currently served as a board member of the Quebec national board of road safety. His current research focuses on the impact on driving performance of aging, navigation and communication technologies and active safety system in vehicles. He also works on the development of a Multigenerational Workforce evaluation program to evaluate the “age readiness” of industries.
