Education:

  • Doctor of Philosophy (Rehabilitation Science)
  • Master of Science (Neurorehabilitation)
  • Bachelor of Medical Rehabilitation (Physiotherapy)

Research:

My research has focused primarily on development and evaluation of theoretically-grounded programs to support full participation in health-promoting behaviours, particularly physical activity, among people with advanced disability due to chronic neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, and their family care-partners. I have particular interests in:

  • dyadic health promotion intervention models that target people with advanced multiple sclerosis and their family care-partners together as active and collaborating partners;
  • innovative strategies for intervention delivery and evaluation, including remotely-delivered interventions that use technology-supported tools for participant engagement; and
  • facilitating long-term adherence and quality participation in health promotion programs.
