Research: Overview

I am actively involved in research related to Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) within the field of Clinical Neuropsychology. Over the past several years, I have focused on mild TBI, or concussion in youth and collegiate athletes. This research has evaluated computer-based assessment measures, identified current issues in the assessment and management of sports-related concussion, and revealed prolonged effects of sports-related concussion in youth athletes.

My early (pre- and post-dissertation) research was primarily in Moderate to Severe TBI, investigated factors affecting severity of injury, such as pathophysiology of injury, and factors lending to the prediction of outcome following rehabilitation.

Ancillary research projects over the years have focused on the use of technology in Neuropsychological Assessement, reimbursement and other factors within the practice of Clinical Neuropsychology, as well as developing and offering distant learning courses through the National Academy of Neuropsychology distanCE Program.
