My primary research focuses on combining injury biomechanics and public health to inform evidence-based recommendations to reduce head impact exposure and improve sport safety in youth populations. I have conducted observational, quantitative analyses of head impact data and have a strong background in collecting, analyzing and interpreting on-field data from head-impact sensors in youth sports. I have specialized training in injury biomechanics and public health with a publication record using contextualized biomechanical data to understand factors influencing head impact exposure in sports.
