Jeffrey D Eggleston
Assistant Professor, Kinesiology

Dr. Eggleston’s expertise is in lower extremity biomechanics during locomotor and jump/landing activities. His primary interest is in lower extremity function during walking in children and adults who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and in identifying motor impairments which are associated with the disorder. Dr. Eggleston is interested in not only identifying motor impairments within this population, but also in discovering novel therapeutic modalities which may mitigate observed motor impairments while also decreasing traditional social and behavioral deficits associated with the disorder improving overall quality of life for the individual and their family. Dr. Eggleston is also interested in evaluating lower extremity function during jumping and landing activities in athletic and recreationally active populations. The overall goal of this research is to further understand differences between males and females in these activities, with the hope of decreasing injury prevalence in females. Within this focus, Dr. Eggleston is also aiming to examining how protective bracing might produce unwanted movement characteristics and cause injuries at other bodily locations.
