College Degree: 

Ph.D.: Michigan State University; Doctoral research on ankle ligamentous injuries.
Postdoctoral Fellow: Kessler Foundation Research Center, West Orange, NJ; Research concentration on weight-bearing MRI of the knee with osteoarthritis.
Postdoctoral Associate: Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, IL; Research concentration on the study of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular disorders that are associated with abnormal control of posture and movement.


Research Interests:

My current research interests focus on human musculoskeletal system modeling, post traumatic osteoarthritis, bone fracture, sports injury prevention and rehabilitation, pattern classification and recognition, imaging, lower extremity electromyography (EMG) in pathological gait, mechanotransduction in articular cartilage, and locomotor adaptation.
