My research interest includes diverse aspects of musculoskeletal injuries, rehabilitation and exercise as it relates to both young and old people. Specifically I engage in projects that try to understand how tendon overuse injuries occur, and how they are best treated. Additionally, we try to understand how ruptured tendons heal, and what rehabilitation efforts that can optimize the outcome.
