My current research interests are in two area and cross the age spectrum. My work in
balance and fall prevention has been an ongoing association with Jewish Community housing
for the Elderly. We have been collecting data to identify fall risks and developing
intervention programs to prevent falls. Most recently, I have collaborated with
engineering faculty to develop modeling of fall risks for prediction of falls. The other
area of interest in in prevention of obesity/overweight in pre-school children in
partnership with Head Stat Programs of South Boston. The Northeastern physical therapy
piece is to develop physical activity programs for children and their teachers and
determine the outcome of these interventions.
