Research Interests

As an occupational therapist with clinical experience in adult neurologic rehabilitation, I am interested in exploring the neural mechanisms of stroke and identifying innovative ways to improve recovery for people experiencing stroke and other acquired brain injuries. In the NPNL, I currently support research projects investigating stress and other indicators of stroke recovery, as well as virtual reality as a modality for motor recovery.

Before beginning the PhD program at USC, I worked at The Ohio State University as an OT Neurologic Fellow through the AOTA Fellowship Program.
