Research Assistant

Toronto Rehabilitation Institute



Fitsum received his BA degree in Therapeutic Recreation from the University of Waterloo in 2016. His research interests focus on human development over the life course, with a special emphasis on identity processes, informal caregiving and coping, and translational research. His undergrad thesis was a quantitative analysis of relationship orientation and coping variables among young caregivers in post-secondary contexts.

With a great interest in inter-professional approaches to research and the intersection of health and technology, Fitsum joined IATSL as a research assistant in January of 2017. He is currently assisting with a project that tests continuous, non-contact monitoring assessments to develop falls-risk prevention technology for older adults diagnosed with advanced dementia.
