Chris Hass, Ph.D, is a Professor in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology and affiliate research faculty in the Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration at the University of Florida. Prior to returning to UF, he held academic positions at Columbia University and Georgia Institute of Technology. Currently, he conducts research and teaches in the areas of biomechanics and motor control.
Hass’s research focuses on understanding the complex interplay between the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system during whole body movements such as walking and standing balance. Most of his work has strong clinical relevance with particular emphasis on movement disorders. He has held leadership positions in the American Society of Biomechanics and the American College of Sports Medicine. This work has been funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, Army Research Office, Michael J. Fox Foundation, Autism Speaks and Department of Veterans Affairs.
