My research is in the field of Renal Rehabilitation.  Current projects focus on developing evidence-based guidelines to support the delivery of rehabilitation programs to persons living with chronic renal disease across the renal failure spectrum (pre-dialysis, dialysis, and transplant).  I have a related interest in tele-rehabilitation, and other innovative technologies that can be used to bridge the distances between health care providers who are either engaged in or interested in developing exercise programs for renal failure patients. I currently have space in my research program for graduate students interested in pursuing studies in the field of Renal Rehabilitation.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with a CV, an unofficial copy of your transcript, and academic references.
