Academic background

I have a BSc in Computer Science, a masters degree in Physical therapy, and did my PhD in Rehabilitation Science (McGill University) with Prof. Mindy Levin. My post-doctoral research at the Department of Occupational Therapy (University of Haifa) dealt with the effects of age on the ability to perform dual-task walking using a functional task (texting).

Research interests

My research deals with the interaction between movement, cognition and technology. I am interested in the effects of personal and environmental constraints on the ability of people to perform daily motor functions such as walking, and in the ability of technological solutions to modify this ability. In addition, I deal with the effects of neurological damage (TBI, stroke) on function across the life span.
