HHP PhD Student

I have a broad interest in human locomotion and finding ways of applying biomechanical and physiological concepts to improve human performance in the context of sport and exercise. In addition to earning a B.S. in Kinesiology – Exercise Science (Cum Laude) with a Health Professions concentration at the University of Houston (UH), I have a professional background in coaching and conducting various human performance and fitness evaluations. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in motor behavior. My research will focus on ascertaining ways to effectively evaluate and predict running performance in healthy adults with the aim of optimizing running economy and techniques.
