RESEARCH AND SCHOLARSHIP

BUILD PODER Research Assistant (July 2016 – June 2019)
Biomechanics, Kinesiology, CSUN, Northridge, CA
PI: Sean P. Flanagan, Ph.D.
• The primary focus of our lab is to analyze joint contributions and compensations particularly in the lower extremities.
• Responsibilities include: Accurately biomechanically instrument subjects, data collection using motion capture software, data processing using motion analysis software, use inertial sensor equipment, train interns and graduate student how to use lab equipment

Laboratory Experience

Dry Lab Techniques
• Using a motion capture program called Cortex. To use this program, I have learned how to properly calibrate the infrared cameras.
• Properly biomechanically instrument subject, via palpations, for data collection.
• Develop research data collection methodology
• Using a motion analysis program, Visual 3-D, to analyze subject data and create a 3-D musculoskeletal model.
• Transporting data and translating it into an excel file for interpretation of the data.
• Use inertial sensor equipment Noraxon.
