Postdoctoral Research Fellow

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, 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. 

Dr. Roby received her BA in Exercise and Sport Science - Athletic Training from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, her MEd in Kinesiology – Athletic Training from the University of Virginia, and her PhD in Human Movement Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During her 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. Tricia can be reached at robyp@email.chop.edu.
