Research Interests: Bobby completed his Kinesiology degree from the University of Waterloo in 2019 and immediately began working in the Brain and Body Lab. He is an avid marathon runner and golfer, so he loves engaging in research that assesses the impact of physical activity on cognition and overall quality of life. In the lab, Bobby enjoys interacting with participants, specifically conducting the pre- and post-program assessments for the LEAD 2.0 Trial.
Current Studies: Bobby is our resident ‘Jack-of-All-Trades’ and he is actively involved in many ongoing studies in the lab. He is in the final stages of wrapping up an evaluation of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario’s Minds in Motion program. Positive results of this study have supported the adoption of the virtual Minds in Motion program locally and throughout other regions of Ontario. Currently, the majority of Bobby’s time is spent being the project manager of the LEAD 2.0 Trial, which investigates the feasibility of a 6-month virtual exercise and lifestyle program seeking to improve cognitive function. Participants in this study are asked to participate in 3 sessions per week (totalling 4 hours), consisting of two virtual group sessions and one independent session.
