Dr Johnson???s research is focused on establishing a safe and efficacious exercise-training model that will promote recovery, improve cardiovascular health and quality of life after stroke. His research in assessing how exercise capacity changes over time after stroke will inform the development of exercise training guidelines to accelerate recovery, enhance motor function and reduce the disability experienced post-stroke. Dr Johnson has expertise in exercise testing and prescription in clinical populations and balance testing, and is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Epworth HealthCare.

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.
