Associate professor, School of Physical and Occupational Therapy, McGill University

The overall goal of her research program is to address the needs of older adults to promote aging well in their communities. Her research program has three interrelated themes: 1) the use of cognitive engagement approaches to promote cognitive health; 2) the use of technologies to promote aging well in the community and 3) to understand the impact of age stigma in the care of older adults. I am particularly interested in working with older adults facing neurocognitive disorders and their caregivers. She has a growing interest in participatory research methods and the co-development of activities with stakeholders in community-based settings.
