Research Interests
My overarching interest focuses on the metabolic changes noted in patients with chronic illness after an exercise program. Presently, I am developing a project centering around patients with Cystic Fibrosis and the effects of exercise on their quality of life and disease status. I am also conducting research with the Rutgers School of Nursing focusing on interprofessional PT/Nursing education models. Finally, I am looking at metabolic changes in patients with a spinal cord injury after using an exoskeletal walking device.
