I am actively involved in developing and implementing novel clinically feasible methods to address the problem of physical activity across human lifespan. I am also involved in research related to aging-associated osteoporosis, osteoporosis-related fractures and sarcopenia in various populations with low exercise tolerance. As a musculoskeletal scientist, my previous work has led to understanding of the functional and structural characteristics of musculoskeletal system in different types of population such as older adults with osteoporosis, individuals with spinal cord injury, youth and adults with obesity, and children with cerebral palsy. My current research is focused on examining muscle mechanics and its affect on physical activity.
