Thesis: “Mathematical and Computational Verification of the Use of Localized

Infrared Thermology in the Detection of Muscle Recovery Post-Resistance Training”

This research used mathematical and computational modeling that localized infrared thermology could be used to access muscle recovery status post-resistance training.

The study was one of the first to explore the theoretical application of the use of thermal cameras in the detection of muscle damage/recovery status.

Study Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, England Spring 2012

Abroad Biotechnology/ Confocal Microscopy
