I hold a wide range of research interests, primarily focusing on rehabilitative vestibular healthcare. These interests form five main subject areas: (1) vestibular rehabilitation in elderly populations, (2) protocols in electrophysiology measures, (3) biopsychosocial approach to balance care, (4) undergraduate/graduate training/curriculum in vestibular disorders, and (5) clinical applications of vestibular rehabilitation.
