Growing up, the death of Dr. Jenny Campos' grandfather from a preventable fall while carrying groceries up a flight of stairs shook her family to the core. Today, it is the driving force behind her research in falls and driving collision prevention in the elderly. By simulating real life challenges in Toronto Rehabilitation Institute's renowned Challenging Environment Assessment Lab (CEAL), Dr. Campos is finding ways to help older adults live well.
In this episode, Dr. Campos delves into her pioneering work with virtual reality and motion simulation technologies, how she has learned to find a work-life balance in academia, and why it's so important to mentor the next generation of young scientists in STEM.
Dr. Jennifer Campos is an Experimental Psychologist and Scientist at KITE, a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Multisensory Integration and Aging, and Associate Director of the Challenging Environments Assessment Laboratory and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto.
A leader in the field of simulation rehabilitation, her research uses multisensory integration to understand how age-related sensory impairments (e.g., vision, hearing) and cognitive impairments can increase the risk of falls and vehicle collisions in the elderly.
