Fisayo Aloba

Fisayo Aloba is a graduate assistant for GSI's Atlanta Global Partnerships.

She is also a doctoral candidate in the Neuroscience Graduate Program at Emory University, where her research focuses on the use of novel spatial-motor techniques to treat spatial-neglect and gait deficits post-stroke. Her research approach involves a combination of prism adaptation therapy and electrical stimulation to address these challenges. Additionally, Fisayo employs Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to identify biomarkers that can inform targeted stroke treatments.

Fisayo's research is supported by an NIH T32 Ruth L. Kirschstein Institutional National Research Service Award (NRSA) (2021-22) and NIH NINDS F31 Ruth L. Kirschstein Individual National Research Service Award (NRSA) (2023-26).

Outside of the lab, Fisayo loves to explore and travel.

Fisayo's educational background is diverse. She obtained her BS in Medical Rehabilitation (Physiotherapy) from Obafemi Awolowo University in Nigeria. She then pursued her Master’s in Physical Therapy at the MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston, Massachusetts, followed by her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Texas Tech University HSC School of Health Professions. Fisayo is licensed to practice both in Nigeria and the United States.
