Personal profile

Research Interests

My areas of clinical interest are in the rehabilitation care of adults with neurologic disorders. This has more specifically included adults who have cerebral palsy, those with movement disorders such as Parkinson disease, and individuals who have sustained spinal cord injuries or strokes. Research efforts have focused in these areas as well, and in particular with spasticity management to improve function in a variety of upper motor neuron disorders.
