Research and Scholarship

Research and Scholarship Interests

    • Rehabilitation medicine and in primarily designing and investigating novel diagnostic tools and treatment protocols to optimise patient care and health-related quality of life post-injury. 
    • Understanding neuromuscular adaptations in lower extremity injuries 
    • Long term goal is to improve functional outcomes in patients such as balance or walking gait mechanics, and patient-reported outcomes

Current Research Projects

    • Studying neuromuscular adaptations in intrinsic and extrinisc muscles of the lower extremity after foot and ankle dysfunction
