Specific research topic areas that I am interested in are:
- Personal Protective Equipment (design effectiveness, evaluation & compliance issues), particularly helmets and back belts.
- Biomedical Engineering (biomechanics, physiological response to varying workplace designs, and the application of current relevant biomedical techniques to the ergonomics field).
- Training effectiveness & response regarding ergonomics & safety.
- Impact of the aging workforce on existing standards and work measurement practices, and workplace design.
- NORA objectives pertaining to occupational ergonomics and safety.
- Manpower and productivity issues associated with municipalities.
- Donning, Doffing and modeling of PPE and sanitation equipment.
