Research Summary

My research combines biomechanical solutions with rehabilitation principles to solve fundamental problems in public health. I have a diverse background in the fields of ergonomics, biomedical, computer, and mechanical engineering, physical therapy, and public health. I have completed many ergonomic assessments of large-scale industrial factories including: automotive, appliance, and chemical plants and have trained incoming graduate students on how to properly conduct ergonomic assessments in the field. Additionally, I have led multiple research projects with physicians as well as government and private industrial research institutions as a Co-Investigator on several University and NIH-funded grants.
