During his undergraduate studies, he was a research assistant and intern at the Functional Orthopedic Research Center of Excellence (FORCE) Laboratory where he assisted with biomechanics research using 3D motion capture and force plate technology. His main areas of research included lower extremity biomechanics following ACL reconstruction and walking/running biomechanics in maximal versus minimal shoes. Some of the studies he worked on have been published in peer reviewed journals such as the American Journal of Sports Medicine (AJSM) and the Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine (OJSM).
While at the University of Pittsburgh, he volunteered as a strength and conditioning coach for the Mighty Penguins Sled Hockey, an organization dedicated to training and developing athletes with disabilities in adaptive hockey. The vast majority of his clinical experience is in outpatient orthopedics.
When he’s not at the clinic, Brian enjoys spending time with his family, hiking, kayaking, and snowboarding. He is an avid sports lover, and is doing his best at becoming a Boston sports fan… especially the Celtics. Additionally, he enjoys spending time with his two rescue cats, Bruce and Bessie.
