Daniel Armstrong is a PhD Candidate in the Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics lab at the University of Waterloo. His research interests include understanding how interacting personal, task and environment factors influence the range of movement strategies an individual uses in the workplace, as well as quantifying the loading implications associated with movement to infer injury risk. Daniel received both his BSc (2016) and MSc (2019) in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo.
