Associate Scientist, Institute for Work & Health

Dwayne Van Eerd.
Dwayne Van Eerd got his start in occupational health and safety research in a clinical setting, studying musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) of the upper body in musicians, painters, writers, and other artists following his Master of Science degree in kinesiology.

He is an associate scientist with the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) and focuses primarily on the prevention of MSDs in office workers. Van Eerd is an active participant in the Institute's systematic review program, which enables him to analyze and share existing evidence on MSDs.

In future research, he hopes to conduct an evaluation of knowledge transfer and exchange (KTE) strategies. He is enrolled in the doctoral program in epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto.
