Rehabilitation Engineering
My research focuses on the biomechanics of human locomotion, with particular interest in the in vivo measurement of muscle and tendon mechanics. Specific research interests include:
Muscle and tendon mechanics for locomotion
Linking the mechanics and energetics of locomotion
Muscle morphology and function in healthy and injured/impaired individuals
Muscle and tendon injury mechanics
Peer reviewed publications
