    A software tool for objective identification of concussion-related vision disorders using a novel eye-tracking device
    Role Description: The long-term goal is to develop an objective assessment of vision characteristics, that will enable physicians that are non-specialists in vision to 1) screen for concussion-related vision disorders; 2) identify VSC; 3) make decisions about the necessity of a referral for a comprehensive vision examination; 4) monitor the effectiveness of vision treatment.
    Role: Collaborator

    Improving quantitative recovery outcomes from concussion with aerobic exercise training
    Role Description: We aim to 1) determine the relationship between symptoms, cerebrovascular function, gait, and executive function soon after a concussion, and 2) investigate the effect of an aerobic exercise intervention protocol on concussion recovery.
