My current research interests lie in the efficiency of tools used to assess the risk of musculoskeletal injuries and in the evaluation of anthropometric accommodation, especially with very limited anthropometric datasets.
I manage the Office Ergonomics Research Committee, an international research consortium of companies interested in computer work.
Physical ergonomics, industrial and office workplace risk assessment, technical standards
