Dr. Kiefer's research takes a complex systems approach to performance enhancement and injury prevention in sport, and integrates innovative technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, eye tracking, and biofeedback tools with established training practices to improve training outcomes. His expertise in behavioral dynamics and dynamical disease provides an innovative approach to measuring, modeling and analyzing the complexity of healthy and pathological human performance in a variety of contexts. Opportunities for mentorship in the research process are available, and participation by interested fellows and prospective graduate students is encouraged.
