Research Interests

My primary research interests are in biomechanics, particularly the application of quantitative movement analysis technologies. I have focused on the utilization of kinematics, kinetics, dynamic EMG, pedobarography, and energetics in clinical decision making, outcomes assessment, and biomechanical modeling.
