Degree: Graduated with a PhD in Human Kinetics (2007)
Bio: The focus of my PhD Work was the examination of visual processing for action in the absence of conscious awareness by determining how “invisible” stimuli influence movements. The funding I received during my PhD was critical to my success in the program. In particular, it provided me with the time to focus on my studies full-time, allowing me to develop the knowledge, tools and skills necessary to establish my own research program. I am currently an Associate Professor in the School of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa, where I teach and conduct research in the area of sensorimotor control. My current research investigates the processes underlying sensorimotor learning in healthy individuals and those who have experienced a stroke. The success of this research program can be directly tied to the graduate students in the lab and the expertise of our collaborators, including my former advisors at UBC.
