Personal profile

Research Interests

The focus of my research is to optimize treatment outcomes and the health of individuals with upper extremity musculoskeletal disorders. I employ an integrative approach exploring the interaction between neuromuscular and biomechanical mechanisms and body structure and function to evaluate treatment efficacy and effectiveness. Rich collaborations with orthopaedics, engineering, sports medicine, and radiology enhance our ability to develop novel methods to advance the examination and treatment of patients seeking care for musculoskeletal shoulder pain.
