Kinesiology and athletics are a good match, KPE's Dr. Côté tells Le Soleil

News

Dr. Julie Côté, of our Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, spoke to Le Soleil this week about her career, her experiences, and the happy marriage between athletics and kinesiology in her current profession.

"J'ai compris que ce que je faisais," Dr. Côté told Le Soleil's Jean-François Tardif, "ce n'était pas seulement de la physique, c'était aussi de la biomécanique car j'utilisais des équations de physique pour comprendre les mouvements du corps humain."

Dr. Côté is Associate Professor in our Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, and Director of the Occupational Biomechanics and Ergonomics Lab (OBEL). Dr. Côté is also the Faculty of Education's Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. She is currently a CIHR chair in “Gender, Work & Health”. Her research focuses on the biomechanics and motor control aspects of fatigue and pain, interventions to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders, and promoting workplace health for men and women.
