Biography

My career goals are to formulate new knowledge and evidence for physical therapy practice and to foster leadership through research, teaching and service. I am committed to an academic career with emphasis on translating mechanistic research to evidence-based clinical application in the field of neurologic rehabilitation. My research goal is to develop robust interventions aimed to improve physical abilities for people with stroke and spinal cord injury. I also am deeply committed on preparing outstanding researchers, biomedical engineers, and evidence-based practitioners to help advance our profession.
