Undergraduate students and entry-level professional students
Dr. Liu is interested in recruiting promising undergraduate students or OTD and DPT students to participate in research activities in the Healthy Aging and Functional Ability lab. Dr. Liu’s lab incorporates hand-on training to ensure that students’ participation and engagement facilitate their future career pursuit in the health care field or advanced graduate degrees.
Dr. Liu is accepting PhD students pursuing the Rehabilitation Science Doctoral Program. The lab uses a range of research methods to study functional ability within the population of older adults. The lab focus on healthy aging in both experimental and more naturalistic contexts (home, retirement communities, the health care setting or system). Incoming students will spend time working with older adults, fellow researchers inside and outside the department of occupational therapy, and stakeholders.
