My research focuses on utilizing current technology to provide intensive rehabilitation services to stroke survivors. I examine computerized treatment programs that aim to mitigate the effect of stroke-induced aphasia (i.e., a disorder in understanding and formulating language) and hemiparesis (i.e., weakness on one side of the body). In collaboration with computer scientists and physical therapists, I test the feasibility of utilizing a humanoid robot in clinical and residential settings. Further, I investigate the interaction between speech therapy and physical therapy with the purpose of maximizing the outcome of interdisciplinary stroke rehabilitation.
