I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Injury Prevention and Mobility Laboratory at Simon Fraser University, working with Dr. Stephen Robinovitch (Professor and Workpackage 5.2 co-lead). I completed my PhD at the University of Toronto and Toronto Rehab-UHN, where I worked with Dr. Alison Novak (Scientist, Toronto Rehab-UHN) and Dr. Brian Maki (Senior Scientist, Toronto Rehab-UHN). My research and development program focuses broadly on preventing injuries due to falls, especially in older adults.
