Zoë’s previous research focus was in proprioception and muscular performance of the ankle and calf muscles. She has studied the effect of multiple sclerosis and healthy aging on these functions. Zoë was also recently involved in a clinical trial aimed at reducing falls in people with multiple sclerosis using a step-training exercise intervention. Her sub-study investigated if ankle proprioceptive and muscle ability improved, with this exercise training, which may facilitate functional improvements.

Zoë is currently working at the Spinal Cord Injury Research Centre (SCIRC), at NeuRA. She is working on a few multi-centre clinical trials aimed at restoring function in people with spinal cord injuries, these trials attempt to determine the effect of transcutaneous spinal cord stimulation on the walking ability, or upper limb and respiratory function of people with chronic spinal cord injuries. She also runs the SCIRC volunteer participant database and social media channels.
Zoë manages the wider day-to-day operations of the centre, in her position as SCIRC manager.
