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 pediatrics, and outcome measurement.

  • Single Center: Muscle Strength and Function following SEMLS Surgery in children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Non-conventional Genomic Risk Factors of Cerebral Palsy associated with Prematurity
  • Radiographic Assessment of Bone Age in Children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Management of Severe Equinus Deformity in Children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Quantitative Assessment of Joint Contribution to Limb Shortening in Children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Validity, Reliability, and Efficiency of Software Enhanced Acquisition of the Edinburgh Visual Gait Score
  • The role of the triceps surae during gait in boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy: The impact of tendo-achilles lengthening’s
  • Cerebral Palsy Hip Outcomes Project – International Multi-centre Study
  • Radiographic, Kinematic, and Kinetic Analysis of Foot Structure and Function in Children with Persistent Idiopathic Toe Walking (ITW)
  • Patella Alta in Children with Cerebral Palsy: Prevalence and Functional Significance
  • Correlation of Selective Voluntary Motor Control and Gait Deviations in Children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Quantitative Assessment of Walker Use during Gait
  • Quantitative Assessment of Kinematic Gait Variability in Children with Cerebral Palsy
  • Relationship between Motor Level and Physical Function in Children with Myelomeningocele
