Post Doctoral Fellow


Dr Neha Malhotra

Neha completed her PhD from the University of Hong Kong in 2014. Neha’s research has focused on the role of consciousness in motor skill learning and performance under pressure in surgical skills training, sporting and driving contexts.  Her current research interest lies in exploring motor skill learning, re-learning and performance in older adults who are healthy and those with physical and c​ognitive deficits.
