My research program examines biomechanical and neuromuscular function following joint injury and in obesity. I specifically examine modifiable characteristics that contribute to accelerated knee osteoarthritis incidence and progression, and develop novel intervention strategies that improve mobility and physical function. I have secondary interests in running-related performance, injury prevention, and rehabilitation.
