Leonardo A Peyré-Tartaruga
I grew up in the south Brazil, alternating times between Montevideo (Uruguay) and Porto Alegre (Brazil). Crossing several times the Pampas made me deeply interested in nature and biology. After, I can joint my passion for sports and movement to biology area. Currently, I am Professor and Researcher at Lapex, UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil. I am interested in minima, maxima and others optima in terrestrial locomotion & Sports Sciences. The pathological gait is a very interesting area to apply basic concepts of human locomotion. I am very proud to study and principally, to change life as in the Parkinson projects. Also, the study on mechanical determinants of locomotion performance and economy is my passion.
