Distinguished Professor Emeritus

David WinterDavid A. Winter, PhD, PEng. is Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Kinesiology and Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo. Prior to his appointment at Waterloo he held appointments in surgery at the University of Manitoba, served as Director of Biomedical Engineering Research at the Shriners Hospital in Winnipeg, and held faculty appointments in Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Nova Scotia, Halifax, and at the Royal Military College, Kingston. His BSc and MSc degrees were in Electrical Engineering from Queens University, Kingston and his PhD was in physiology and biophysics from Dalhousie University, Halifax. His many distinctions include Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics. He was the first recipient of the Career Investigators Award by the Canadian Society for Biomechanics, the Lifetime Achievement award by the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society and the Muybridge Medal by the International Society of Biomechanics. He is the author of Biomechanics and Motor Control of Human Movement, 3rd Edition and three other texts on biomechanics and EMG of normal and pathological gait, balance during standing and walking and signal processing in the movement sciences.
