Prior to working at CLU (Fall 2012) I worked as an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at the University of Mississippi (Fall 2006 - Summer 2010)for four years and for two years as an Assistant Professor of Sport and Exercise Science at East Tennessee State University (Fall 2010 - Summer 2012). My main areas of expertise are Applied Neuromuscular Physiology, Strength and Conditioning, and assesment of Human Performance. I have taught classes ranging from Exercise Physiology to Neuro-Motor Control at undergraduate and graduate levels. At CLU I have taught Functional Anatomy, Exercise Physiology, and Senior Capstone. My reaserch interests include acute measures to fascilitate power expression using whole body vibration , maximal voluntray contractions, and ballistic jumps. Target subject populations have included reacreationally trained males and females, as well as Division I and know Division III athletes.
