Position:
Clinical Associate Professor
Division:
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Research Sumary:

My general area of research is clinical epidemiology, in particular as it applies to the assessment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.  Work to date includes more than 40 clinical research papers published in peer-reviewed journals and collaboration in 17 funded research grants.  This body of work includes multiple clinical epidemiology designs including clinical measurement (clinimetrics), case-control studies, diagnostic test studies, survey research and systematic reviews and best evidence syntheses.  Recently my interest has focused on the prevention of disability in people with musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.
