Short Bio

My primary research interests lie in evaluating neuromuscular adaptations to resistance training in athletes with a special focus on knee injury prevention, and return to sport neuromuscular assessment after knee injury in winter sport athletes. I employ whole body biomechanical and neuromuscular assessments to evaluate the effects of resistance training on basic muscle properties such as the force velocity relationship and force length relationship. Additional interests include training load monitoring in athletes for performance optimization, and evaluating neuromuscular peformance in strength/power athletes. I also work directly with Olympic-bound Canadian athletes as a sport scientist/strength & conditioning coach at the Canadian Sport Institute Calgary (CSIC). My position involves technical mentorship of high performance strength & conditioning coaches, directing research/innovation projects in the CSIC Strength and Power Laboratory, and leading a multi-disciplinary team of practitioners to optimize athlete performance.  I regularly present at national and international conferences in the areas of injury prevention, athlete monitoring, training program design for elite athletes, and strength and power testing methodologies.
