Research Interests

Injury Biomechanics

My research interests relate to injury biomechanics, more specifically focusing on the characterization of bone fracture mechanics and the determinations of bone strength towards quantifying injury risk and better preventing injuries. My postdoctoral research focuses on identifying gait asymmetry in Thoroughbred racehorses towards identifying injury risk.
