Research & Clinical Interests

My research interests include the investigation of: 1) student learning outcomes and engagement through innovative teaching methods 2) the use of diagnostic ultrasound in the measurement of the material and mechanical properties of tendon 3) instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization effects on the Achilles tendon properties in individuals with decreased tendon length or tendinopathy.

I am certified in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy of the Spine (MDT) and therefore my clinical expertise is in the treatment of patients with pain originating from the spine.
