Dr. Ezeugwu specializes in designing health-promoting interventions using behaviour change and ecological approaches to optimize healthy movement behaviours (physical activity, sedentary behaviour, and sleep) across the lifespan - from children to older adults. His research primarily focuses on precision health, employing wearable technologies, behaviour change techniques, biomarkers, and ecological approaches to personalize rehabilitation interventions for people with stroke, Parkinson's disease, frailty, and long COVID.
PTHER 546: Adult Neurology: Introduction to the theory and application of physical therapy in adults with neurological conditions.
PTHER 565: Aging and Physical Therapy: An examination of age-related changes, prevalent age-related conditions treated by physical therapists and contextual factors that influence the activity and participation of older adults.
Seeking prospective postdoctoral scholars, PhD, and master's-level graduate students with prior experience in working with wearable activity and heart rate/rhythm sensors.
Due to the nature of our current research program, preference will be given to clinicians with a current practice permit in Alberta.
