My general research interests focus on supporting full participation in health promoting behaviours, particularly physical activity, among persons with neurological disabilities and their family care-partners. The overarching goal of my research is to develop strategies to minimize disease impact and maximize health-related benefits at individual and dyadic (i.e., care recipients together with care-partners) levels. My current lines of research include:
- Novel dyadic health programming in neurodegenerative conditions: This line of research focuses on developing, evaluating, and implementing theory-based dyadic physical activity interventions for persons living with neurodegenerative conditions and their care-partners. Studies in this line of research have focused on multiple sclerosis.
- Fostering the wellbeing of care-partners of persons with neurological disabilities: This line of research focuses on identifying care-partner needs and concerns related to wellness, examining cross-sectional and longitudinal relationships between resilience and wellbeing, and on developing strategies to support the wellbeing of care-partners of adults with neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative conditions.
- Innovative strategies for intervention delivery and evaluation, including remotely-delivered interventions that use technology-supported tools for participant engagement.
