Research Focus

My research focuses on traumatic brain injury. More specifically, my main domain of interest is to develop predictive models of outcome in a traumatic brain injured population. I am specialized in neuropsychological assessment of mild, moderate and severe traumatic brain injured patients in an acute care setting. I work with an interdisciplinary team who has developed specialized interventions to increase the level of alertness and cognition after a traumatic brain injury.
