Current Trainees & Staff

Dr. Eng has had the pleasure of directly supervising over 20 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from backgrounds in physical therapy, psychology, kinesiology, engineering, neuroscience, occupational therapy and medicine. Her trainees undertake research projects related to mechanisms, clinical trials, or knowledge translation within neurological rehabilitation. All trainees have the opportunity to become familiar with ongoing research in the lab.
