To educate is the most crucial tenet of a University. Yet an educated student is not just filled with memorized facts or a series of equations. I believe an educated student is one who can question and synthesize, as well as recall information. To assist my students in achieving these characteristics I apply three expressions to define my teaching style: (1) teach people not just concepts, (2) application leads to understanding and (3) science is fun. These three expressions also drive my research: (1) I always want my research to have a human perspective, (2) my research helps me and those I advise to understand human movement to a greater depth through the questions we ask and (3) I'm always excited to do research and to share the experience with others.
