    Research Overview

  • My current research interests include factors that influence the decision to be physically active and reduce weight gain. I have become especially interested in factors that influence ease and economy during locomotion, especially stretch shortening cycle potentiation. I am also interested in how to improve the quality of life of older adults and cancer survivors.
