Graduate Assistant, Kinesiology (Affiliate)

Research Overview

My general research interest is in regards to recovery of function and psychological/psychosocial factors/influences following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). I am also interested in physical function, specifically muscle function following injury (ACLR). Some projects that I plan to get in involved in as an InCHIP affiliate would be examining effectiveness of injury prevention programs in youth athletes, specifically for prevention of ACLR. Previously I have worked on determining what psychosocial factors may hinder an individuals successful return to sport following ACLR and how these factors correspond to physical function. Similarly I have examined differences between readiness to return to sport following ACLR and object physical function in pediatric and adolescent athletes. Several of these projects listed are still ongoing.
