Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Ghazala T. Saleem is a current postdoctoral research fellow at Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She received her research doctorate in movement sciences with a specialization in occupational therapy from Teachers College, Columbia University and was trained in clinical research at Harvard Medical School. She earned her Master’s in occupational therapy from Columbia University. Her research interests include understanding the mechanism of human motor control/learning and neuromodulation via behavioral and neuroimaging techniques in children with acquired brain injury and using motor learning and neuromodulatory interventions to optimize function and recovery in pediatric brain injury. Her current research work focuses on characterizing postural control impairments, identifying biomarkers and employing noninvasive brain stimulation in pediatric brain injury. She is a trained/licensed occupational therapist with extensive clinical experience in pediatrics and neurological disorders.
