SHP Welcomes Carole A. Tucker, PhD, PT as Associate Dean for Research
A Message from the Office of the Dean
Dear Faculty and Staff, I am pleased to announce Dr. Carole Tucker as our new Associate Dean for Research in the School of Health Professions and Professor in the new department of Nutrition, Metabolism, and Rehabilitation Sciences. Dr. Tucker received
her PhD in Exercise Science from the State University of New York Buffalo. She is a licensed physical therapist and engineer with extensive clinical and research experience in exercise science, physical therapy, and biomedical engineering.
Dr. Tucker’s current research program is focused on the development of patient-centered outcomes and wearable sensor systems for clinical and “real-world” measurement, as well as the implementation of learning health systems and artificial
intelligence/machine learning approaches to improve patient health and health care system outcomes. Much of her past research has been focused on pediatrics, particularly in populations with developmental disabilities and movement dysfunction.
As Associate Dean for Research, Dr. Tucker will lead the new SHP Office of Research, staffed by Beth Cammarn and Matthew Lakich. This new office will focus on enhancing and expanding SHP’s research portfolio by offering a wide range of services
including research development, education and training, submissions, and post-award management, among others.
Please join me in welcoming Dr. Tucker.
