Dr. Reed-Jones obtained her PhD in Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences from the University of Guelph in Guelph, ON. Her educational training was based in the areas of biomechanics and motor control of human movement. Dr. Reed-Jones’ research focuses on sensory system integration and its role in the execution of motor tasks such as walking and standing. Her research has both clinical and basic science components combining the fundamentals of neuroscience with the techniques of biomechanics. Her main health-related research to date has involved special populations such as athletes with concussions and individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, as well as working with older adults to understand the healthy ageing process and its role in mobility issues and risk of falling.
