and experience-based background. Educationally he
is grounded in physical sciences, engineering, and
computer modeling with bachelors and master degrees.
His doctoral work, which was focused on analytical
techniques, provides the theoretical for Northstar
Biokinetics rigorous analytical process while recent
studies and research in human functional anatomy,
physiology, human neuroscience and human biomechanics
form the basis for current case analysis work in
injury biomechanics. Broad personal experiences in
the areas of aviation, boating, sports, agriculture,
and construction add experience-base understanding
to all aspects of case analysis.
Dr. Knapp holds two master degrees (one in biomechanics) and a Ph.D. in forensic biomechanics. Professional affiliations include the society of Automotive Engineers, the American College of Sports Medicine, and the American Academy of Forensic Sciences. Dr. Knapp works full time in the area of injury biomechanics in addition to owning and managing Northstar Biokinetics.
