Dr. Roger Kollock is Assistant Professor and Director of the Biomechanics Research Laboratory within the Oxley College of Health Sciences. He received his postdoctoral training at Auburn University’s Warrior Research Center. He holds a Ph.D. in Human Movement Science from Old Dominion University.

Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, Auburn University
Ph.D., Old Dominion University
M.A., East Tennessee State University
B.S., Gardner-Webb University

His research interest is in the investigation of neuromuscular and biomechanical characteristics influencing spinal and lower extremity injury risk in athletic populations such as collegiate athletes and military Warfighters. The specific aim of his research agenda is to provide an evidence-based approach for analyzing lower extremity muscular strength within the context of large-scale screening exams and return-to-play evaluations (or duty) in order to optimize health and performance in traditional and nontraditional (e.g. Warfighters) athletes.
