Profile Summary

My training began with an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and Neurobehavioural Assessment, followed by an MSc in Biomechanics and Motor-control of locomotion (both at the University of Waterloo, Canada) and culminated in my PhD in Neurorehabilitation Sciences (University of Birmingham, UK).

My research goals are to translate a better understanding of the underlying principles of the control of walking to its rehabilitation and thus spans basic laboratory based experiments (to identify impairments in walking and their putative mechanisms), systematic reviews (to examine the current state-of-the-art in clinical evidence bases for neurorehabilitation) and randomised control trial methodologies (to test the effectiveness of new rehabilitation treatment paradigms targeted at the cause of impairments and to stimulate neuro-plasticity and functional recovery).
