Dr. Wutzke completed his PhD in Human Movement Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill before becoming a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Washington DC. Dr. Wutzke’s research examines altered gait and balance function in pathological populations including people post stroke, people with Parkinson’s disease, and individuals with minor cognitive impairments.   

The opportunity to work with students and be a part of their academic journey is a tremendous honor. I strive to foster an interest in Human Physiology and to help students understand the direct application of course concepts to their intended professions. My passion for biomechanics and neuromuscular control are not research interests, but a means to improve the quality of life for the clinical populations that are the focus of my research.
