Dr.Ewa Niechwiej-Szwedo, Ph.D

After obtaining a MSc (with prof. Molly Verrier) and a PhD (with Dr. Marty Steinbach) in Rehabilitation and Neuroscience at the University of Toronto, I conducted my post-doctoral work with Dr. Agnes Wong at the Eye Movements and Neuroscience Laboratory at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Currently, I am an assistant professor in Neuroscience and Human Health in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo.

My main research interest is to understand how the brain processes and integrates sensory information to guide real-life functional behaviours. Our current projects examine the role binocular vision in hand-eye coordination during skillful motor performance, particularly during development. I am also interested in using eye movements as a tool to understand the impact of brain injury on cognitive and motor functions.
