His thesis is entitled "Hip & Spine Mechanics - Understanding the linkage from several perspectives from injury mechanisms to rehabilitation". This work is focused on understanding this relationship through both normal and injury mechanics of the linkage and is comprised of a combination of biomechanical modelling and experimental research.
He is an outstanding instructor and highly competent with the scientific history that is the foundation of the McGill approach. He has taught with Professor McGill internationally for the past 6 years.
