Dr. Jennifer Campos

Associate Professor


After completing a PhD in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour at McMaster University Dr. Campos completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship and was a Research Team Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Tübingen, Germany). Jennifer joined the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - University Health Network in 2009 as the inaugural Chief Scientist of the Challenging Environment Assessment Laboratory; a $40 million state-of-the-art virtual reality and simulation facility. Jennifer is currently a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Multisensory Integration and Aging, the Associate Director (Academic) and a Senior Scientist at KITE - Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Campos' research focuses on enhancing safe mobility during walking and driving under realistic and challenging conditions. This includes understanding fundamental changes in multisensory integration with age and how age-related sensory declines (e.g. vision, hearing) and cognitive declines can increase the risk of falls and vehicle collisions (e.g. in healthy older adults, individuals with hearing loss, dementia). Jennifer makes extensive use of virtual reality and simulation technologies to a) systemically control multisensory experiences, b) carefully recreate real world conditions, thereby facilitating the generalizability of research outcomes to real world applications and c)optimizing and adapting these technologies for use as powerful and novel tools for training and rehabilitation interventions.
