Research

My research focuses on spine mechanics. I am particularly interested in how some people control their muscle recruitment to prevent injury and how this relates to stability in the spine. Part of understanding this involves looking at how these skills evolve, if at all.

  • Spine mechanics
  • Mechanics and motor control of spine stability
  • Injury mechanics and prevention
  • Ergonomics and workplace safety
