Personal profile

Personal Statement

My primary research interest is the study of human movement. This has been shaped from many years as a physiotherapist; practising, teaching and researching. I am currently working on a number of projects using technology to support and optimise neurorehabilitation. I am particularly interested in the recovery of community mobility. I would be intersted in supervising PhD students with an interest in technology enabled rehabilitation.
