Research/Teaching Statements

Research - I presented data at the Annual American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) meeting at the end of May.  These data characterize normal activation of the soleus and tibialis anterior muscles during treadmill locomotion at various slopes.  I also characterize the time course of recovery of activation during the first 10 weeks after peripheral nerve injury.  I currently have a manuscript in review that characterizes the effect of exercise on axon regeneration after peripheral nerve injury as well (“Treadmill Training Promotes Axon Regeneration in Injured Peripheral Nerves”).  I recently had a proposal for a research symposium (“Current Uses of Electromyography to Evaluate Neuromuscular Plasticity and Control of Movement”) accepted for next year’s ACSM research conference.  I organized and submitted this proposal in June.

Teaching - In the Fall of 2006 I sat in with Dr Haftel on the physiology lab at Morehouse College and in the Spring of 2007 I taught the lab independently. This lab was designed to complement the lecture course through the use of laboratory simulations of a series of topics in physiology. I utilized brief and focused discussions to introduce each laboratory experience, and then guided students through their laboratory experiences with hands-on assistance and calculated questioning. This fall I am going back to deliver several of the labs once again. I am also currently teaching “Exercise Testing and Prescription” at Clayton State University in Morrow, GA.
