Everyone will experience changes in cognitive abilities at some point in their life time, either as a part of normal aging, or as a result of a health condition (e.g., traumatic brain injury). Emily’s research examines: assessment approaches that capture how cognition influences participation in daily life; the effectiveness of rehabilitation interventions designed to facilitate involvement in meaningful activities for individuals with cognitive difficulties, and how these services can be delivered using technology. Emily is also examining what role cognitive abilities play in resiliency, or how individuals utilize personal strengths, and supports in their environment, to adapt during life transitions.
