Cristina Rubino MSc

(She, Her, Hers)

PhD Candidate


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:

  1. Mechanisms of visuomotor learning in healthy adults (using eye-tracking, robotics and neuroimaging); 
  2. 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.
