Josh graduated with a BSc. (Honours) Specialization in Kinesiology from Queen’s University in 2019 and an MSc in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Toronto in 2021. He is currently a PhD candidate in the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto, completing his research within the Bloorview Research Institute at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital under the supervision of Dr. Shannon Scratch and Dr. Elaine Biddiss.

Josh’s thesis research is part of the R2Play project, involving development and testing of a technology-mediated multidomain assessment and rehabilitation tool for pediatric concussion. His work uses mixed- and multi-methods research approaches incorporating principles of user-centered design and co-design to understand required functionality, iteratively test usability and feasibility, and develop and evaluate a clinician training program.

Josh is also a Registered Kinesiologist and has experience working clinically with adults and youth with concussion, designing individualized exercise and education-based rehabilitation programs to support return to school, sport, work, and life.

Outside of school and work, Josh is happiest outdoors, where he enjoys hiking, cycling, paddling, skiing, and any sport with a racquet and a ball.
