PhD Advisor: Dr. Amit Sethi
Reason for pursuing PhD in SHRS:
My interest in pursuing a degree in adult neurorehabilitation is very timely as motor rehabilitation after stroke is critical worldwide. Stroke is a serious cause of long-term disability, and in many cases, the failure to improve motor function in individuals with stroke results from a shortage of knowledge about evidence-based interventions to improve motor function after stroke. I aspire to discover mechanism-informed evidence-based interventions to help individuals with neurological impairments recover upper-extremity function. This will address the shortcomings of current methods in treating post-stroke patients, which will significantly help to reduce disability after stroke. After completing my PhD at the University of Pittsburgh, I plan to return to my country and use my knowledge to facilitate the development of the adult neurorehabilitation field.
