Dr. Lin's research theme focuses on musculoskeletal biomechanics and medical imaging to identify the risk factors of the secondary complications followed by neurophysiological diseases. The long-term goal is to gain insights into the mechanisms to develop interventional programs based on scientific-driven analytical metrics for early detection of potential injuries/diseases to help the advancement of preventative medical practice.
