My research focuses on injury prevention and mobility enhancement in older adults. During my PhD, I sought to understand the circumstances of falls and factors associated with risk for injuries. My current postdoc research involves two projects. The first project was supported by MITACS, which aimed to survey existing evidence (through literature synthesis and electronic surveys to recreational therapists) on the effectiveness of recreation therapy programs in enhancing mobility outcomes (e.g., physical activity, performance of daily activities, falls) for residents in long-term care.
