I am a clinical Physiotherapist in Neurological Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation having worked primarily in the Public Sector. I am also a Lecturer at the School of Allied Health Science and Practice.

In 2020, I completed a Master in Clinical Rehabilitation by Research having researched cardiovascular exercise in patients with stroke using the Lokomat robotic and transition from the Lokomat to body-weight supported treadmill training. I have also been previously involved in other collaborative research projects through my clinical work and work with the Stroke Foundation.

I am currently enrolled to complete my PhD in mind-body therapies for people with persistent pain following stroke and have an interest in the use and application of mind-body therapies in the neurological population. I am also interested in Functional Neurological Disorder and the influence that our thoughts, beliefs and perceptions have on our physical function and overall wellbeing. Similarly, I am also interested in factors such as interoception and exteroception, body awareness, and the role of the autonomic nervous system with regards to improving and maintaining physical health and wellbeing.

Other interest areas include chronic disease management, self management and behaviour change, as well as robotics and technology for neurological rehabilitation.
