Postdoctoral Research Associate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology


K. Michael Rowley, PhD, studies neuromuscular control of movement in diverse athletic and clinical populations as well as preclinical animal models. Michael earned his BS in Exercise Science and Biological Sciences from the University of Delaware in 2013 and his PhD in Biokinesiology from the University of Southern California in 2018. Throughout his education and training, Michael has conducted research on shoulder kinematics in children with brachial plexus birth palsy, landing mechanics and lower limb muscle coordination in dancers, and trunk control dysfunction during dynamic balance in persons with recurrent low back pain. Michael has also taught human anatomy to physical therapy, occupational therapy, medical, and post-professional students. Currently, Michael is serving as a postdoctoral research associate at Brown University investigating neuromuscular control of bat shoulders during flight.
