Areas of Specialization:
My research interests are generally related to the injury and rehabilitation of the knee. I am specifically interested in the etiology and rehabilitation of chronic knee injuries like patellofemoral pain (PFP) or iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS). My research not only investigates the influence of hip and trunk muscle function on chronic injuries, but also how the chronic pain from these injuries influences muscle function and the mechanics of locomotion. New and innovative rehabilitation, like utilizing whole-body vibration, is also a major component of my research in injured, diseased, or aging populations.
