    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    My research interests focus on the unrecognized and underappreciated musculoskeletal complications due to diabetes and chronic kidney disease, primarily in the lower extremity. I have extensive experience combining quantitative clinical imaging, three-dimensional biomechanics, and physical function and activity techniques to characterize the relationship between the musculoskeletal movement system and function. The goals of this work are to improve the early detection of negative structural and functional effects of disease, improve the rate of recovery of clinically meaningful outcomes, and prevent the occurrence of secondary injuries and chronic conditions.

    Courses taught:
    PT251A Research Design I: Introduction to Scientific Inquiry
    PT251B Research Design II: Appraisal of Scientific Literature
