    Research interests

    Our research goal is the development of effective and efficient, individualized rehabilitation for people with stroke and other neurological injuries.  Numerous studies are focused on characterizing neurobehavioral changes over the course of stroke recovery, developing new and optimizing current motor interventions, and improving clinical practice.


    My guiding philosophy for mentorship is that if you succeed, I succeed. I recognize that each person comes to the table with a different set of scientific and life experiences. My role is to tailor the mentored experience to help you determine and then achieve your own goals. Early on in a mentoring relationship, my preference is for a structured, hands-on approach that facilitates a safe environment for honesty, feedback, and learning. As the relationship progresses, it morphs to foster strong scientific, communication, and career development skills. A good mentoring relationship is a mutually-beneficial partnership that keeps both individuals engaged and excited about science and science careers. Over the past decades, it has become clear that mentoring is the best part of my job here in academia.
