My research falls within the field of clinical neuropsychology, which examines the cognitive, emotional and behavioural changes associated with different types of brain damage and brain dysfunction.

I am particularly interested in adult traumatic brain injury, but I am also involved in research examining pediatric traumatic brain injury, stroke, chronic fatigue syndrome, and a variety of other conditions that can affect cognitive or emotional functioning.

I am also involved in meta-analyses that consolidate existing research in various areas of clinical neuropsychology.
