Research activities

My research focuses on improving clinical interventions though exploring mechanisms underlying motor dysfunction and neuroplastic changes throughout the lifespan of people with Cerebral Palsy and other neurologic causes of chronic disability. As a member of the Vi Riddell Pediatric Rehabilitation Research group and the Non-Invasive Neurostimulation Network (N3), I will primarily be using clinical and neurophysiologic metrics to evaluate sensorimotor pathways and performance in people with Cerebral Palsy.

Current projects involve using these metrics as biomarkers for: i) understanding mechanisms underlying interventions, ii) use as an early indicator of treatment effect in long-term interventions, and iii) designing individualized interventions for optimal effect. As a specialist in PM&R, I am involved in clinics treating adolescents and adults with pediatric onset disabilities and work to integrate research into these clinical settings.
