I am a former professional baseball player, physical therapist, and quantitative epidemiologist. I was a Clarendon Scholar at the University of Oxford prior to joining the faculty at Wake Forest School of Medicine. I also hold an honorary appointment with the United Kingdom Centre for Sport, Exercise, and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis.
My research focus is in creating real world clinically applicable research, that has direct application in orthopaedic and sports medicine. My specific research entails risk and risk mitigation, life span impact of exercise and sport, and the influence of clinical decisions on patient care. I have worked with multiple national and international professional athlete organizations and leagues through both consulting and academic projects.
