Research Statement

Over the past decade, my research has focused on the effect of Parkinson disease on postural control and falls as well as the effect of exercise countermeasures as a means of minimizing these deficits. Through my participation as PI or co-investigator on previous and current grants, I have developed the expertise in the cross sectional studies, implementation of  clinical trials of rehabilitative interventions, and longitudinal studies of the progression of disability.
