    Collapse Overview
    The overall focus of my research is to understand the interaction between movement and musculoskeletal tissue changes, which can impair function or be used to our advantage to improve function in older adults. My primary interest is integrating rehabilitation, advanced imaging, basic science, and technological innovation with a concentration on lower extremity conditions.
