Research Interest

I study the mechanisms that underlie persistent maladaptive knee loading strategies after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. My research aims to determine the effective instruction and feedback on restoring knee loading and the effects of training using these methods. In addition, I am exploring the relationship between joint level impairment, daily loading behaviors, psychometrics, environmental and personal factors on loading patterns. These studies will contribute to our understanding of the interaction between patient behaviors and recovery.
