RESEARCH INTERESTS

A new area of research for me is mirror therapy. Mirror therapy was first introduced to treat phantom limb pain. It is thought to work via cortical remapping, a process by which sections of the somatosensory cortex are remapped to receive sensations from other parts of the body. More recently it has been used as a form of therapy for patients with unilateral pain in an extremity and/or paralysis (e.g. following a stroke). We are hoping to apply this to college students with less severe injuries (e.g. chronic pains associated with moderate to intense exercise regimes). As a hard-core amateur athlete with deluded dreams of grandeur, I have had my share of injuries. And sometimes there are no fixes at all. Instead you need to manage the pain. Mirror therapy may allow parts of your brain (e.g. somatosensory cortex) to be re-wired or re-associated with non-painful stimuli (e.g. from your left arm if you right arm is in pain). Heck, it sure beats taking 10 Advil a day. We will keep you posted.

My main research program is to study what various aquatic animals do underwater and how and why they do it. I focus on two groups of animals, seals and fish. In both cases I use state-of-the-art behavioral and physiology telemetry to study these animals under natural conditions in the field. (See Publications).
