Areas of Research

Growth and Development
My research examines the development of the musculoskeletal system across the lifespan using advanced medical imaging (HR-pQCT, pQCT, DXA). I examine sex- and maturity-related differences in bone and muscle development in children and adolescents. My research also focuses on understanding the impact of loading (physical activity, exercise) and unloading (sedentary time, microgravity) on skeletal adaptation.
