My primary research interests and focus of input include: 1. Normal swallowing and oral stage swallowing disorders; 2. Researching the prevalence, nature, and management of dysphagia in under-researched populations, especially among people who experience chronic illness and chronic auto-immune and pain conditions; 3. Investigating dysphagia and communication difficulties among people with invisible illnesses, with a focus on the impact of these difficulties on their quality of life; 4. Involvement of patients and the public in the design and conduct of dysphagia research.
