I am a Lecturer in the Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology and the Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science Programs at the Australian Catholic University in Strathfield. I coordinate Neurological Analysis, Prescription and Rehabilitation in the Masters program and Exercise, Health and Disease and Exercise Rehabilitation in the undergraduate program. As an academic I continue my research in stroke rehabilitation at St Vincents Hospital as an honorary appointee and currently I am involved in 3 clinical stroke trials i) translating intensive upperlimb rehabilitation into practice ii) using virtual reality for post stroke education iii) and the development of a stratification scheme to identify upper-limb motor-function post stroke.
I completed my undergraduate Bachelor degree in Exercise and Sport Science at Sydney University in 2007. In the following years I gained experience working with both clinical (neurological, cardiopulmonary and metabolic) and healthy populations. In 2010 I began a Masters by Research at Neuroscience Research Australia in stroke rehabilitation and in 2012 I converted to a PhD.
My main experience is within the following areas,
1. Clinical exercise physiology, specialising in Neurological/Neuromuscular rehabilitation
2. Rehabilitation research, undergraduate, postgraduate and early career researchers
