I specialize in 3-D dynamic analysis in clinical and sports research.
I have been at Seton Hall University teaching Biomechanics and Statistics since 2001. Before that I taught Biomechanics at the University of Texas in Austin. In addition to my teaching duties I also coordinate the Human Functional Performance Laboratory.
My research is two-fold:
Clinical (Orthopaedic) Biomechanics - Rehabilitation Engineering and its application to the clinical research. Biomechanics of both normal and pathological locomotion, determination of the mechanical factors to affect the control of coordinated movement, and the assessment of the injury mechanisms of the musculoskeletal system.
