Katie's research will focus on the management of older adults at risk of falling within the community setting. In particular the determinants of exercise, level of adherence and methods by which treatment interventions for older community-dwelling adults may be enhanced will be explored. Her research is supervised by an inter-disciplinary team from clinical therapies and engineering and will also explore the supportive role of health technology for this population.
