His research projects have included such diverse interests as reliability and validity in the measurement of bioenergetics, movement disorders such as focal task specific dystonia (in musicians), body composition assessment techniques, the use of computer-assisted visual feedback in French horn pedagogy, as well as fall-risk assessment in older adults.
