Madeleine joined Strathclyde in 2000 having previously worked at the University of Glasgow, the University of Edinburgh and the MRC Human Movement and Balance Unit in London. She is a Chartered Psychologist and an HCPC registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist. Her research focuses on developing and evaluating rehabilitation programmes for stroke survivors, and she is also interested in how perceptuo-motor control changes with age.

BSc (Hons), MPhil, PhD (Edinburgh), CPsychol, HCPC registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist.
Stroke rehabilitation. Developing and evaluating low-cost rehabilitation interventions for adults who have survived a stroke. These interventions are aimed at improving upper limb function, physical activity levels and cognitive abilities.
Ageing. Age-related changes in perceptuo-motor control and the extent to which perceived movement abilities change the activities older adults engage in.
Modelling the timing of body movements. Developing and testing the tau-guide model of the timing of motor actions. Exploring the extent to which the temporal control of movement is similar to other forms of timing such as the perception of a time interval.
