Bio/Research

I am a Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education at Wilfrid Laurier University and the Director of the Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre.

I received my PhD in Behavioural Neuroscience and Kinesiology with a concentration on neuromechanical study of movement disorders from the University of Waterloo in 2004 and my MSc in Human Biodynamics from McMaster University in 2000.

I am primarily interested in neural control of movement and how it is affected by various movement disorders as well as how exercise can play a role in the treatment and management of these disorders. This research provides insight into the types of exercise that can benefit those with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

My research interests also span a number of underlying mechanisms that may be present in movement disorders. This research into identification and treatment of specific mechanisms can provide insight into strategies to help improve the lives of those with movement disorders.

Current research grants include: Michael J. Fox Foundation, NIH - SPARX3 Exercise Trial for Parkinson's Disease, CIHR - Canadian Consortium for Neurodegeneration and Aging (CCNA) Site Leader
