What is something you’ve learned from working with such an interdisciplinary team?
Even terms that you think you understand, people use in different ways! Just recently, I completed writing a systematic review of the contribution of auditory cues to balance with a music technology PhD student, a neurotologist, and a vestibular therapist. It took us weeks to understand a simple word like “frequency,” because it meant something different to each one of us. That was an amazing interdisciplinary experience.
What is the most rewarding part of working with students across NYU?
Being a physical therapist is all about helping people. So being able to harness students’ brightness and skills to help people is something that means a lot to me.
