Research Interests: 

My research aims to prevent and reduce the human and financial impact of workplace injuries through:

I. Applied Ergonomics

  • I collaborate with employers, workers and other stakeholders, using principles of knowledge translation, to develop tools that can be used in primary and secondary injury prevention.

2. Identifying Determinants of Occupational Task Performance

  • I use motion-capture and electromyography to identify how gender impacts development of muscle fatigue during occupational task performance.
