Research Topics

Rehabilitation research related to gait biomechanics across the lifespan, neuromodulation in spinal cord injury on sensory motor outcomes, recovery of locomotion in spinal cord injury, caregiver/care recipient relationships in the families that include individuals with in spinal cord injury, and effects of community camps on empowering people with spinal cord injury and impacting their physical/psychosocial functioning and quality of life.
