Christopher K. Rhea
Dr. Christopher K. Rhea is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. He serves as the director of the Virtual Environment for Assessment and Rehabilitation Laboratory (VEAR Lab) and teaches courses in biomechanics and movement variability. Dr. Rhea received his B.S. in Physical Education from the University of Central Missouri (2002), M.S. in Movement Science specializing in sports biomechanics from Barry University (2004) and Ph.D. in Motor Behavior specializing in biomechanics from Purdue University (2009). His primary research interest is the control of locomotion. One line of research in the VEAR Lab consists of developing and applying assessment techniques derived from nonlinear dynamics to evaluate locomotor behavior before and after injury. The primary clinical population of interest is those with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
