Research interests

I completed my PhD work at RPI on “Molecular mechanisms of muscle aging, dilated cardiomyopathy, and history-dependent muscle properties using Drosophila as a model organism.”

Building on my experiences with college basketball, I hope to combine my continued passion for athletics with my muscle mechanics research to inform strength training recommendations and post-injury management.

Teaching interests

Biomechanics, Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering Capstone Design.
