- Ice Hockey Skating Biomechanics

Personal Statement:

In Fall 2018, I began doctoral studies in the Ice Hockey Research Group under the supervision of Dr. Shawn Robbins and Dr. David Pearsall. I discovered a passion for biomechanics during my master’s program at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, California. Working under Arnel Aguinaldo, I was fortunate to assist with pitching research focusing on segmental energy flow and elbow valgus load with teams such as the Texas Rangers. I also conducted my own master’s research in combat sport biomechanics, evaluating differences in individual cross punch and combination cross punch mechanics. This experience, combined with my lifelong interest in ice hockey ultimately led me to discover the research being done by the IHRG at McGill.
