Department of Physical Therapy
Faculty of Medicine
Ms. Rubino completed her Master of Science in Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia. She received a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biology from York University. Her area of specialization is in cognitive, behavioural and clinical neuroscience. Recently, she has been working on:
- Mechanisms of visuomotor learning in healthy adults (using eye-tracking, robotics and neuroimaging);
- Understanding subjective and objective measures of oculomotor function after stroke (using eye-tracking, surveys/interviews, and neuroimaging)
If she could collaborate with another type of researcher, Ms. Rubino would work with biomedical engineers to develop a device to track eye-hand movement in people's homes (for assessment and treatment after stroke).
Ms. Rubino plays Ultimate Frisbee in Vancouver, BC. (She played for the UBC Thunderbirds in 2018.) She also has a pet dog named Zephyrus.
