About

Dr. Williams is the Biomechanics Lab Director, and investigates rate of force development to study neuromuscular performance. In 2011, he initiated the Power Training Program, which uses principles and tools in biomechanics, strength and conditioning, and rehabilitation to investigate rate of force development, optimal neuromuscular training, explosive power, balance, joint stability, and special populations. The Power Training Program has involved over 200 undergraduate research assistants, and over 500 student-athletes across 25 sports.
