Dr. Roby serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention.
Tricia Roby, PhD, ATC serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow under the supervision of Kristy Arbogast, PhD. Broadly, her research focuses on studying short- and long-term physiological outcomes following pediatric concussion. At Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP), she is collaborating with Dr. Arbogast on several research projects that aim to examine the biomechanical and physiological underpinnings of pediatric concussion and subsequent recovery timelines.
During Dr. Roby's graduate work, she studied the effect of single-season head impact exposure on cerebrovascular function in high school athletes. She has been a certified Athletic Trainer since May 2012 and has worked clinically at the high school and collegiate level.
