David W. Keeley
Assistant Professor, Department of Biomechanics
New Mexico State University, USA
David William Keeley is currently an Assistant Professor of biomechanics at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. He completed his PhD in the Exercise Science at the University of Arkansas in May, 2011. While at Arkansas, he spent time working with the Human Performance Lab and the Sport Biomechanics Group. Throughout his academic tenure, he has been invited to give more than 20 national and international presentations and authored/co-authored numerous papers accepted for publication in peer reviewed journals. He is currently an active member of the American College of Sports Medicine, the American Society of Biomechanics, and the International Society of Biomechanics
David is currently active in researching injury prevention and rehabilitation in athletic settings. His research focuses primarily on those biomechanical parameters associated with upper extremity injury in throwing athletes. He currently utilizes a variety of data collection tools including motion capture, electromyography, near-infrared spectroscopy, and ultrasonography in an effort to develop a complete picture of those mechanical characteristics that may lead to upper extremity injury. He also focuses on the impact that various rehabilitation protocols have on the ability of athletes to return to competition.
