Bio

Joanna is a human movement scientist and physiotherapist with a strong interest in understanding causal mechanisms. Her research focuses on 3 key themes:
1) Applying methods to answer causal questions in applied clinical research
2) Investigating new solutions to the problem of contracture in paralysis, and
3) Finding strategies to improve research integrity and rigour.

Jo applies epidemiological and computational methods to answer causal questions in clinical and laboratory-based research. She applies these techniques across different domains, such as human sensation and movement, spinal cord injury and stroke, and teaching and student learning. Her laboratory work investigates human movement kinematics and muscle electrical activity in normal and impaired human movement. Jo also has a sustained interest in good scientific practices, and regularly co-writes the blog Scientifically Sound (https://scientificallysound.org/) as a resource on sound science.

She could discuss research design and data analysis for a while (probably for too long). She likes dark chocolate and strong tea.
