About my research…

The central theme of my research program is the prevention and treatment of workplace injuries. This is accomplished through the following three research strands: DRiVE Lab 2.0 (Driving Research in Virtual Environments 2.0) is comprised of two states of the art virtual reality laboratories housed in the A.A. Thornbrough Building; Whole-Body Vibration Mitigation Strategies and Device Development; and Wrist Brace Assessment and Development
