Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Kinesiology

Tim Kempf Portrait

Tim Kempf has been teaching at Boise State University since 2011 in the area of Exercise Science.  He teaches a variety of courses, such as Exercise Testing and Prescription and Biomechanics.  He is interested in exploring correlates of physical inactivity and developing intervention programs to improve physical activity behavior patterns for long-term health.

Kempf’s past experiences include working in Cardiac Rehabilitation as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist at the University of Pittsburgh, and doing research in both Biomechanics and Human Motor Learning and Control at Rush Medical Center in Chicago.

Kempf and his wife enjoy both Alpine and Nordic Skiing and in the summers, mountain bike touring.  To date, they have biked over 1,000 miles of the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route.
