Dr. Derek Pamukoff is an Assistant Professor in Kinesiology at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF) with expertise in Biomechanics. He received a Bachelor of Science (Honors) degree from McMaster University in Kinesiology in 2009, and a Master of Science degree from Wake Forest University in Health and Exercise Science in 2011. During his undergraduate and master’s degrees, he was also a varsity cross-country and track and field athlete. He completed his PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015 in Interdisciplinary Human Movement Science (Specialization: Biomechanics). Dr. Pamukoff’s research has previously been funded by research grants from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB). He has also been recognized for his research with awards from the ACSM Biomechanics Interest Group, and is an active member of ACSM, ASB, and the Osteoarthritis Research Society International. He has published manuscripts in many peer-reviewed journals including Clinical Biomechanics, The Journal of Electromyography & Kinesiology, and Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
Dr. Pamukoff’s research focuses on the prevention of knee osteoarthritis following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, and biomechanical contributors to overuse injuries such as stress fracture.
Dr. Pamukoff’s current research projects include:
