Research Focus

Research in the Biomechanics Laboratory focuses on three major areas:

We also collaborate frequently with Dr. Richard Van Emmerik and the UMass Motor Control Lab, and with Dr. Jane Kent-Braun and the UMass Muscle Physiology Lab. Students are funded primarily by departmental research and/or teaching assistantships. Current external funding is provided by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the American Society of Biomechanics, the International Society of Biomechanics, New Balance, Acushnet Technologies, Kosair Charities, and Cybex, Inc.
