Academic interests: 

As a researcher and scholar, my major research goals are the promotion of full participation and active lifestyles to improve health and the quality of life of individuals with disabilities through evidence-based practice. I believe there are many services based solely on anecdotal personal experiences rather than scientific evidence. To accomplish my goal, I have focused on the topics I call the three Ms: Measurement, Mechanism and Method. I believe that without the appropriate measurement and research methodology, our educational service decisions, as well as our research findings, cannot be fully validated. I also strongly believe that we must question our assumptions and be willing to continuously improve our current practices in adapted physical activity by revealing the underlying mechanisms of behavior change. It will lead to providing effective services for individuals with disabilities.
