Dr. Ross Miller Receives Promising Scientist Award from International Society of Biomechanics
Dr. Ross H. Miller, assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology, received the 2015 Promising Scientist Award from the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), in recognition of his biomechanical research. The highest award for early career biomechanists, the ISB selects one awardee every two years, on the basis of an individual’s professional history and scientific contribution to the biomechanics field.
Dr. Miller will accept the award at the ISB’s XXV Congress, to be held July 16 in Glasgow, Scotland, where he will give a 30-minute presentation on his research. Sponsored by Motion Analysis, the award confers a certificate and a monetary award to be used for scientific purposes.
This is the third Promising Scientist Award received by SPH, with kinesiology postdoctoral fellow Hiroaki Hobara receiving the award in 2013. Kinesiology Associate Professor Jae Kun Shim advised Dr. Hobara; Dr. Shim was the recipient of the award in 2009.
Dr. Miller's research centers on how the neural, muscular, and skeletal systems interact to produce locomotion in health and pathology. Dr. Miller serves as the Director of the Locomotion Laboratory at the School of Public Health.
