Associate Professor

PhD in Exercise Physiology: University of Toledo
MS in Exercise Pysiology: West Virginia University
BS in Geology: West Virginia University



Professional: Jeff is in his 15th year of post-doctorate teaching at the university level, and teaches courses in exercise science. Jeff seeks to prepare WOU students for the infinite opportunities available to Exercise Science students. He also has a passion for performance sports training and undergraduate research.  He seeks to involve his students in research projects that will lead to presentations at regional and national conferences, as well as publication in peer-reviewed journals.  His research interests are in the area of neuromuscular adaptations to exercise, including research on whole-body vibration training, sensory motor training, mechanomyography, the Hoffmann reflex (H-reflex), control entropy, and the “intensity” analysis of physiological signals (e.g., electromyogram and mechanomyogram).
