Research Interest

I have a broad based multidisciplinary concussion research program which primarily focuses on:

  • Concussion: 1) Impairments in postural control/balance following a concussion, 2) Determination of post-concussion recovery, 3) The relationship between post-concussion return to participation and associated sequel, and 4) Athletic Trainers concussion management practice patterns.
  • Postural Control/Balance: My primary interest here involves the role of Dual Task cognitive challenges on performance of balance testing.
