Research focus:

My current research focuses on developing predictors of improvement after shunting for idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus. We use quantitative kinematics along with a variety of PT and neuropsychological measures at baseline, post-lumbar drain trial and then prospectively longitudinally throughout the course of their lives to examine who will improve post-shunt.
