Through the disciplines of Sport Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Training, and Coaching Education, Dr. Lockwood’s research program investigates best practices in developing athletes. She concentrates primarily in on-ice sport, where she has played a critical role in contributing to the science of sport performance. More recently, her work has extended beyond understanding the human factors to include working with industry to assist in equipment engineering, material properties and design to explore how to best harness physical and technical preparedness through sport equipment.
