- Biomedical Engineering
- Injury Mechanisms
I utilize video, force, and EMG measurements to analyze human motion, along with musculoskeletal modeling to estimate internal loading on the structures of the human body. I study athletic movements, industrial job tasks, and activities of daily living. I am interested in acute injury mechanisms such as ACL ruptures and how these acute injuries lead to chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis.
At the undergraduate level, I teach Biomechanics (KIN 355). At the graduate level, I teach Injury Biomechanics (KIN 515) and Musculoskeletal Modeling (KIN 517). I also provide research experiences for undergraduate students through the honors program and independent study. My MS and PhD students have a variety of multidisciplinary backgrounds, from kinesiology to physical therapy to engineering.
I am the Director of Graduate Education for the Department of Kinesiology and a member of the American Society of Biomechanics. I have been a reviewer for scientific journals such as Gait & Posture, Journal of Applied Biomechanics, and Ergonomics.
