My research interests are centered on the optimization of human movement in sport. My current research endeavours range from optimizing the biomechanics of athlete training techniques to customizing the properties of the golf club to a player’s swing. My approach to solving problems on the optimization of human movement is founded on the development of forward dynamic models. Recently I have been programming genetic algorithm routines to determine the optimal timing of muscle activation patterns in my human models. Below, I've included some links to video content associated with my research.
