More About Maitri

Maitri’s interest in research sparked during her undergraduate studies in India when she published her first paper. Her undergraduate capstone project, “The effect of core stability training on dynamic balance and lower extremity performance in young, asymptomatic individuals’ has been published in International Journal of Physiotherapy and Research.

While Maitri understood the importance of conducting research, she also had to acknowledge that proper research required following the right protocols and rules. McGill University is known worldwide for its state-of-art research and this really ignited Maitri’s passion for learning how to conduct research from experts.

Maitri found Dr. Sara Ahmed’s lab at McGill and was drawn towards the research being conducted in the area of chronic pain management. Maitri plans to continue her research in the fields of musculoskeletal disorders and geriatric physiotherapy.
