I am committed to the translation of research into clinical practice and my recent work has concentrated on developing a broader theoretical focus in, gerontology and rehabilitation, and this is represented by in excess of $7.8 million in research and consultancy contracts. I am recognised for my expertise in providing rehabilitation and physiotherapy input into the design and implementation of interdisciplinary research focusing on older people or those with long term conditions. I have developed effective partnerships between rehabilitation / gerontology and engineering and this is evident in publications and presentations at international conferences.
