I completed my clinical training in school psychology and later specialized in clinical neuropsychology, so I have a broad interest in working with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of learning, cognitive, behavioral, and psychological concerns.
My research and clinical interests in neuropsychology consider the application of neuropsychology to specific populations. First, I am interested in traumatic brain injury in children and athletes. Currently I have several projects working with sport-related concussions in athletes of all ages. The focus of these projects is to conduct surveillance of concussions in sport and measure the impact of concussions on neurocognitive functioning and the psychosocial impacts of sports-related head injuries.
Other broad research interests include neuropsychological impairments of children with more significant developmental disabilities. Specifically my focus is in impairments in executive functioning and how they contribute to specific learning difficulties in these populations.
Currently, my professional affiliations include: National Academy of Neuropsychology (NAN); Canadian Psychological Association (CPA); American Psychological Association (APA); College of Alberta Psychologists (CAP); Sports Neurospychology Society (SNS).
