Research Interests:

My primary research interests are in biomechanics, particularly the application of quantitative movement analysis technologies. I have focused on the utilization of kinematics, kinetics, dynamic EMG, pedobarography, and energetics in clinical decision making, outcomes assessment, and biomechanical modeling.

Current Research:

Multi-Center: Investigator in the CP Hip Outcomes Project (CHOP) which aims to investigate the health-related quality of life outcomes of hip interventions for children with severe cerebral palsy using a prospective longitudinal comparative cohort design. It is an international multi-centre study involving investigators in orthopaedic surgery, developmental paediatrics, and outcome measurement.

Single Center: Muscle Strength and Function following SEMLS Surgery in children with Cerebral Palsy
