Lyndsie Koon is a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in the Human Factors and Aging Laboratory. Her research interests include exercise and physical activity, cognitive function, motivation, technology, and older adults. Her current research focus examines the challenges and solution strategies adults aging with sensory and mobility impairments experience with everyday activities and specifically, exercise needs. She also is exploring the potential of various technologies (e.g., voice-activated digital assistants, tele-technology) to support physical activity participation and social engagement for adults aging with and without mobility impairments; and understanding motivational factors for older adults associated with physical activity technologies (e.g., FitBits, Physical Activity Trackers).
