I am an Accredited Exercise Physiologist and lecturer in the Masters of Clinical Exercise Physiology with the School of Exercise Science at the Australian Catholic University. I also hold a honorary appointment at St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney and I am a research affiliate with the Center of Research Excellence in Stroke Rehabilitation and Brain Recovery.
I completed the Bachelor of Applied Science: Exercise and Sport Science at Sydney University in 2007 and a PhD at UNSW in 2014. My PhD was based at Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA), where I investigated assessment and rehabilitation techniques for stroke survivors. During my PhD I was awarded a number of competitive scholarships including a full PhD scholarship, a top up scholarship (NeuRA), a Special Domestic PhD scholarship (UNSW) and 3 travel bursaries (Stroke Society of Australasia x2 and UNSW x1).
Since completing my PhD I have continued my research in Neurological rehabilitation and assessment with a special interest in rehabilitation for patients with stroke. I have been involved in a number of studies utilising virtual reality for education and rehabilitation in these populations.
