My overriding goal as a researcher is to produce new information to improve both working and general quality of life, with a particular focus on shoulder health and performance.
In summary, my research program aims to generate new knowledge in four major areas:
- Fundamental shoulder function and dysfunction;
- Creation and validation of mathematical models to predict shoulder demands
- Applications of shoulder biomechanics to workplace injury prevention
- Rehabilitative and preventative strategies for ensuring shoulder health
More information about previous and ongoing projects can be found on the website of my laboratory, Digital Ergonomics and Shoulder Evaluation Laboratory (DIESEL).
