Research
Research Interests
My research and scholarship interests are primarily in the area of aquatic therapy. I have worked on knowledge of synthesizes summarizing the evidence to support aquatic therapy for stroke patients, persons with obesity and diabetes, knee osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, women with breast cancer, post menopausal women with osteoporosis and persons with multiple sclerosis. I have also done research of discovery using descriptive and quasi-experimental research to measure outcomes of aquatic therapy in persons with osteoarthritis post total knee replacement. Since 2013, I have been co-editor in chief of the Journal of Aquatic Physical Therapy and currently serve as the Director of Research for the Academy of Aquatic Physical Therapy of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Current Projects: Current projects involve developing community aquatic programs incorporating Ai Chi for seniors to promote wellness, as well as studying the efficacy of using the interactive learning platform, PEAR Deck in a DPT graduate school classroom.
Current Programs: Ai Chi for Seniors at Fellowship Village, Basking Ridge, NJ, Established Fall of 2013: This program allows DPT students to have an intergenerational experience, promoting wellness and incorporating Ai Chi in an aquatic environment.
