CHRIS HASS, Ph.D. | UF Doctoral Dissertation Advisor/Mentoring of the Year Award
Chris Hass is a professor in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology and the associate provost for academic and faculty affairs. He has taught courses in biomechanics, neuroscience, research methods and motor control. His 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.
"Despite his impressive accomplishments in the field of biomechanics, he maintains an air of humility in his mentoring style that permits a level of mutual growth and exchange between him and his students that, to me, feels rare," said Matt Terza, Ph.D., instructional assistant professor in APK and a former trainee.
Congratulations Dr. Hass! He is one of five recipients to be recognized by The Graduate School for this campus-wide award.
