Biography

Cherie Kuo is a 5th year PhD student working with both Dr. Kathleen Friel at Burke Rehabilitation Center and Dr. Andrew Gordon at Teachers College, Columbia University. She has clinical training background as a physical therapist for her undergraduate in National Taiwan University (NTU) in Taipei, Taiwan. She got her Master’s of Science from the Neuroscience & Education program in Teachers College, Columbia University in 2009. Cherie has extensive experience in supervising therapeutic camps and data analysis for our clinical trials.

Her research interests encompass: (a) using DTI (diffusion tensor imaging) & TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) to investigate corticospinal pathway in children with unilateral cerebral palsy (UCP), (b) intensive hand therapy to improve hand function in a camp setting in children with unilateral CP. More recently she is focusing on investigating the tactile and stereognosis function, and studying the relationship between mirror movements and corticospinal tract in children with UCP.
