Advising/Office Hours Appointment

Scholarly Interests

Current area of concentration and study is in sport science/sport performance. Additional experience and areas of interest include clinical exercise physiology and physical activity epidemiology.

  • Strength and conditioning
  • Kinetic chain function and its relationship to human movement and performance.
  • Assessment of mobility and stability limitations in kinetic chain function and correction strategies
  • Exercise testing and prescription
  • Sport and exercise injury risk prediction and reduction
