I conduct research to improve safe independent mobility for older adults and people with stroke. My research spans basic science (e.g., practice-based motor adaptation), to clinical trials aimed at increasing physical activity and preventing falls. Please view my website for more information about current research projects and trainee recruitment. I am based at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (University Health Network) in downtown Toronto and are affiliated with Sunnybrook Research Institute and the University of Toronto.
