My research uses mechanical principles to study how people move during activities of daily living and athletic maneuvers. I am interested in using this information to develop technology and clinical interventions that improve movement mechanics and reduce the risk of injury. This area of research and development has also proven to be an effective vehicle for engaging students in the classroom, laboratory, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) outreach programs. 

I am currently the Director of Motion Analysis for the Division of Sports Medicine at Rush University in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. Prior to joining rush, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan.
