Short Bio

My primary research interests are assessing neuromuscular adaptations to resistance training in athletes with a special focus on primary and secondary knee injury prevention and optimizing rehabilitation. I employ whole-body biomechanical and neuromuscular assessments to measure the effects of resistance training on basic muscle properties such as the force-velocity relationship and force-length relationship. Additional research interests include optimizing training load for performance and injury prevention, assessing neuromuscular performance in speed/power athletes, and evaluating the physiological determinants of muscle strength and power for health and fitness. I was previously a strength & conditioning coach, sport physiologist, and integrated support team lead for Canadian Olympic winter sport athletes in alpine ski racing, long track speed skating, and cross country skiing. I still consult with athletes and teams through the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary, one of four Olympic training institutes in Canada.
