Jennifer Campos

Dr. Jennifer Campos is a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Multisensory Integration and Aging. Jenny is the Associate Director - Academic, Senior Scientist, Chief Scientist of the Challenging Environments Assessment Laboratory at KITE and a Professor in the Departments of Psychology, as well as the Rehabilitation Sciences Institute at the University of Toronto. She is also the national Associate Scientific Director of AGE-WELL. Jenny’s research focuses on understanding how sensory health supports brain health and functional, everyday behaviours such as safe mobility. This includes understanding how age-related sensory impairments (e.g., vision, hearing) and cognitive impairments can increase the risk of falls and vehicle collisions (e.g., in healthy older adults, those with hearing loss, subjective cognitive impairments, dementia). She uses virtual reality and simulation technologies to a) carefully recreate real-world conditions, to ensure the generalizability of research outcomes to real-world applications and b) adapt these technologies for training and rehabilitation interventions.
