My fascination in biomechanics started years ago when I started running. I was initially plagued with injuries, but eventually I started working on my form and discovered how physics and physiology integrate to explain the development of coordinated movement. I continued to pursue my interests at the intersection of biology and physics throughout my academic career. My current research focuses on the both the development of coordinated movement as well as the environmental constraints which may delay or accelerate this development of motor skill.
