Research Projects

At the University of Scranton Occupational Therapy Program we have an active research program that begins with our students learning research methods in their Junior year and includes our graduate students in research projects. 

My personal goals are to discover the underlying differences in children who are struggling in the areas of development that support learning, particularly visual perception.  I look to bring current theory in developmental cognitive neurosciences, including dynamic systems, into areas of pediatric occupational therapy research.

Another goal is to inspire upcoming occupational therapists to get involved in research and to approach questions in our field from a broad theoretical base that is not limited to OT.
