David Andrews

The overarching objective of Dr. Andrews’ main body of research in biomechanics and ergonomics is to prevent injuries. He does this by designing and testing various methods for estimating peak and cumulative loads on the body during work and non-work activities, and by quantifying the response of the body to impacts, such as those experienced by the heads of players during collisions in sports such as football and hockey. Dr. Andrews has various research interests related to teaching and learning, including peer observation of teaching, educational leadership, development of teaching practices, student engagement in large classes, and assessment and evaluation in higher education. He utilizes his experience in these research areas within his classes to provide the best learning experience possible for students in Functional Anatomy, Human Factors and Performance, and Biomechanics in the Workplace. He works extensively with both undergraduate and graduate students in all of his research efforts to provide opportunities for skill development and career preparation in various sectors. With respect to leadership roles, Dr. Andrews is a 3M National Teaching Fellow, Past President of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics, the former Research Leadership Chair and Teaching Leadership Chair for the Faculty of Human Kinetics, and former Head of the Department of Kinesiology. He is a member of several national and international societies in biomechanics, ergonomics, and teaching and learning, and he serves on the editorial boards for two scientific journals.
