Connor, Lisa Tabor, PhD, MSOT, OTR/L

Clinical Interests

Stroke rehabilitation; evidence-based rehabilitation practice; rehabilitation of functional cognition after neurological injury

Research Interests

Dr. Connor’s research interests include barriers and facilitators to participation in daily life after stroke, particularly for people with aphasia, and understanding the nature of participation

Teaching Roles

Dr. Connor is a mentor in PhD program in Rehabilitation and Participation Sciences (RAPS). She teaches RAPS Theory, Models and Classifications (M01 650) and RAPS Biopsychosocial Factors Affecting Performance (M01 660). She serves as research mentor for OTD students and MSOT students who take a research elective sequence.


2013: MS Occupational Therapy, Washington University, Program in Occupational Therapy
1992: PhD Experimental Psychology, Washington University
1990: MA Psychology, Washington University
1986: BA Psychology, Johns Hopkins University


Dr. Connor earned her PhD in experimental psychology and her master's degree in occupational therapy at Washington University. She completed postdoctoral fellowships at Georgia Institute of Technology in Cognitive Aging and at the Boston VA Medical Center in Adult Communicative Disorders. She has been co-investigator on numerous interdisciplinary stroke recovery grants, and continues research on determinants of successful community reintegration and participation after stroke, especially in people with aphasia.
