    As a sports medicine clinician I treated and managed traumatic injuries. My early university teaching and research focused on musculoskeletal function before and after injury and surgery, and involved conducting and publishing studies on post-injury/post-surgery adaptations and recovery. Over the past 12 years and currently, I collaborate with University of Oregon colleagues in conducting and publishing research examining the acute and long-term effects of mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) on cognitive and motor functions in university and high school students, as well as studying chronic mTBI in military veterans and adults.
