Tyler Brown, PhD, CSCS

Assistant Professor, Department of Kinesiology and Co-Director, Center for Orthopaedic and Biomechanics Research

Tyler Brown

Tyler Brown joined Boise State University in 2015, as the Co-Director of the Center for Orthopaedic and Biomechanics Research. Prior to his arrival at Boise State, he worked at the U.S. Army’s Center for Military Biomechanics.

His current research focuses on assessing the impact of body borne load on soldier performance and injury risk. He is also involved in many collaborative projects, including efforts to integrate novel imaging techniques and miniature, lightweight inertial sensors into biomechanical assessments of soldier performance.

Brown’s has recently published his work in noteworthy journals such as British Journal of Sports Medicine, Journal of Biomechanics, and Gait and Posture. He remains an active reviewer in the field, and enjoys mentoring graduate and undergraduate students.

Brown received his PhD in Kinesiology from the University of Michigan and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. His dissertation focused on assessing the effectiveness of the current anterior cruciate injury prevention model. He also holds an MS in Health and Human Development from Montana State University and a BS in Exercise Science from the University of Puget Sound.
