Research and Scholarship

Research and Scholarship Interests

  • My research aims to improve the understanding of the relationship between dynamic movement, anatomy, and clinical measures with respect to joint loading and pathology and to enhance the understanding of optimal treatment strategies for individuals experiencing joint pathology. Specifically, I am investigating these concepts in females during and after pregnancy and in persons with hip pathology.
