My primary focal areas in global health pertain to surveillance of secondary health conditions in pediatric neuromuscular disabilities (e.g., cerebral palsy) throughout the lifespan, as well as the identification, evaluation, and refinement of behavioral interventions to reduce morbidity and sustain healthy life years in these populations. I am also interested in studying the causes and consequences of age-related frailty and cardiometabolic disorders, with primary focuses on musculoskeletal pathophysiology and physical activity epidemiology.
